This Annual Is Dedicated 
In Memory of 

The Reverend Robert Cletus Foster 

Born June 2, 1902 Died November 25, 1985 




Rev. R.C. Foster was a native of Davie County. He was married to Leona Welborn on 
June 15, 1931, and they were the parents of two sons: Robert Welborn Foster and David 
Leon Foster. Rev. Foster attended Churchland High School and was a graduate of Wake 
Forest College and Southern Baptist Seminary. He later studied at Union Seminary in 
New York City and at Princeton University. 

Prior to seminary, Rev. Foster was pastor of Rich Fork, Reeds, and Churchland Baptist 
Churches and was a former principal of Fairgrove Consolidated Schools. He was pastor 
of New Friendship Baptist Church from 1962 to 1967 and also served as interim pastor at 
Little White and First Baptist, Thomasville, after retirement. 

Rev. Foster served on many boards of the North Carolina Baptist Convention and the 
Southern Baptist Convention, including the General Board and the Sunday School Board. 

Rev. Foster was instrumental in taking prospective students to Wake Forest Univer- 
sity, and the following testimony indicates what that ministry meant: 

"You took my arm and guided me around the place. You may not realize it, but you 
have constantly been guiding me ever since. You have been most instrumental in my ac- 
quiring what no man may ever take away - a solid education."

REEDS: Purchased new church activity bus. 

RICH FORK: On March 1, 1986, Rich Fork's sanctuary and older educational building 
which housed offices, several Sunday School rooms and choir rooms were de- 
stroyed by fire. Through the good Lord and capable firefighters, the new educa- 
tional wing was saved with very little damage at all to the building. Since March 2, 
worship services have been held in the fellowship hall. The Sunday School classes 
have been quite scattered with a couple meeting in homes, one at the Pilot Lions 
Den, one at the Pilot Fire Department, the youth at the Liberty Associational Office, 
one under the picnic shelter at the church, three in the fellowship hall and one even 
outside under the trees next to the educational building. At present, a modular build- 
ing is being set up which consists of seven Sunday School rooms and it will be 
ready for use the first Sunday in September. An office trailer also is being installed. 

Through the graciousness of the Lord and generous offerings of so many con- 
cerned churches and people in the community, Rich Fork looks to the future and 
replacement of the lost facilities.

Youth & Education, Abbotts Creek; Richard Warner, Associate Pastor, FBC, Thomasville; 
Ann Joyce, Interim Music Director, Abbotts Creek; Angela Pless, part-time Children & 
Youth Worker, FBC, Welcome. 

Betty Bradshaw, chairman of the Missions Committee, gave the Missions Committee 
report. Betty gave the following recommendation and made a motion it be accepted: In 
an effort to be more involved with the Bold Mission plans of reaching people for Christ, 
the Missions Committee wishes to recommend to our association that we sponsor a stu- 
dent, an ordained minister, from Grenada for his education in the United States. The mo- 
tion was seconded. Information and explanations from the Mission Committee were of- 
fered. This would start in the summer or fall of 1987. This type project would be in keep- 
ing with our state convention's suggestion for making use of mission funds that will be 
returned to our association from our state missions offering in the fall. (Starting in the fall 
of 1986, 10 percent of the state missions offering given through our churches will be 
returned to our association.) The committee sees this as a way of being more personally 
involved and supportive of our mission work. We recognize too, a national could serve 
better than a missionary and without barriers to overcome. In the event of internal prob- 
lems or objections to outsiders, the national pastor could continue to serve in his own 
country even if the missionary had to leave. The motion was unanimously accepted. Bet- 
ty also offered the following recommendation into a motion that was followed by a sec- 
ond. Brief explanations were given and the motion was accepted unanimously. 

Those present sat patiently as the clerk read an eight-page report from the Executive 
Committee. 

Associational treasurer, Charles Penninger, gave the treasurer's report reflecting a 
productive year. Balance on the associational building loan has been reduced to 
$6,303.64. Checking balance as of August 31, 1986, was $9,585.36. 

Max Evington, chairman of Finance Committee, presented an ambitious budget pro- 
posal. He noted that the current budget called for $55,921.74 and that the new budget in- 
crease would be $7,583.34. This increase reflects two new ministries as recommended by 
the Missions Committee and accepted by messengers' vote. Mr. Evington expressed the 
need for our churches to increase giving to the association in their budgets. 

Al Martin led in congregational singing followed by words of welcome to Carolina 
Memorial by Rev. Carl Hemphill. 

Moderator Hunt opened the floor for miscellaneous business. It was a quiet crowd. 
Words of appreciation by Doug Huff were welcomed: "I would like to commend the Mis- 
sions Committee, the Director of Missions, and the Finance Committee for their leader- 
ship in providing a challenging program of mission outreach for the coming associa- 
tional year." 

Following congregational singing, Al Martin introduced Paul and Collis Charlton, 
music missionaries to Brazil. They gave testimony and witness through spoken word and 
song. They told of their ministry in Brazil and gave prayer request for a church house in 
their little town. 

A time of worship began with scripture reading from Luke 10:1ff by Rev. Eugene 
Elmore. The annual sermon was given by Rev. Roy Cantrell and well received by all. 

Following the benediction by Rev. Earle Rogers, the afternoon session was dismissed 
for supper.

TUESDAY EVENING 

Those returning or arriving early were treated to song by the Men's Chorus of Carolina 
Mennorial. The session began with congregational singing led by Tom Capps, assisted by 
Mike Russell at the piano and Mary Lou Dickey at organ. There were 229 messengers and 
94 visitors. 

The moderator called for miscellaneous business. Rev. John Pace was recognized. 
Rev. Pace placed the following recommendation into motion. 

Our beloved Director of Missions and his equally beloved wife have been working with 
us in this capacity with the Liberty Baptist Association since he was elected to begin 
work in this position on March 11, 1963. It doesn't take a mathemetician to figure out that 
on March 11, 1988 he will have completed 25 years in this capacity. 
My recommendation to this body today is: 

"That our current moderator be instructed to appoint a committee to plan 
and to carry out a suitable 25th anniversary recognition service, honoring 
Rev. and Mrs. Leonard L. Rollins for their service here in our midst for this 
period of time. Also, this committee is to study his circumstances and to be 
certain that adequate preparation is being made for his future retirement in 
the form of annuity, insurance, housing, etc., and that this committee be en- 
couraged and authorized to inform and enlist all of the churches of the 
Association to become involved in whatever plans and programs the com- 
mittee proposes." 

This is being done 18 months in advance of the anniversary date in order that the com- 
mittee and the churches will have adequate time to make the necessary preparations. 
The motion was seconded and carried unanimously. 

Mr. John Yates extended an invitation to the 75th Anniversary Celebration Birthday 
Party, October 4 & 5 at First Baptist Church, Welcome. 

Mrs. Gaylin Huff, Director of Campus Ministry at Davidson County Community Col- 
lege, gave a very encouraging report of the five-year-old campus ministry. Weekly 
meetings on campus, bible study and fellowship have proven a very effective witness to 
students. 

Mrs. Evelyn Kepley, Senior Adult Coordinator, introduced this newly organized 
ministry. "Nearly 12 percent of America's population are now 65 or older ... As of July 
1982 the Census Bureau counted 32,000 Americans 100 years or older . . . Without a 
doubt, American society is growing older." Mrs. Kepley shared exciting ideas to encour- 
age an active and productive life for our older adults. 

Leonard Rollins expressed deep appreciation of continued concern for relationships 
across the years and years to come. In the Rollins tradition he gave a report on the pre- 
vious Friday night football game between Lexington and Thomasville. Final score 14-13, 
Thomasville. Rollins said, "We'll be back next year." 

Historian, Sara Knapp, gave a history of Carolina Memorial Church. 

The Carolina Memorial Sanctuary Choir provided a time of worship in song. 

Leonard introduced six volunteers from Liberty Association who have been to Togo. 
They are Jim Best, Betty and Dearl Bunce, Malcolm Myers, John Penry and Gene Smith. 

The volunteers gave brief but powerful testimonies of their experiences: 

Jim: was impressed with the friendliness of the natives, went as an iron worker 
and bridge builder, happy to serve his Lord in Togo and was blessed for go- 
ing. 

Betty: shared many practical experiences and humorous stories. 

Dearl: was impressed with their potential, their care for themselves, family and their 

country, friendliness and the poverty impressed him, especially the spiritual 

poverty. 

Malcolm: thankful that he is a child of God and a Baptist, he saw prayers answered and 
the Lord led him each day. 



oldest member from our association to go, went as a bridge builder, saw a 
bridge being built between pagan people and Christians, saw the Lord's hand 
in this project.

beloved Dr. R.C. Foster, and that letters of condolences and words of sympathy be sent 
to the families of Rev. Robert Mabe and Rev. Troy York. 

Dr. Garland Hendricks shared important information about the SBC Annuity Program. 
He encouraged churches to provide for pastors so they can live in dignity instead of 
poverty during retirement years. He appealed to laymen to go back to their churches and 
make necessary provisions.

they provide. He gave explanation of the hospital policy on abortion and the misinterpre- 
tation of the local news media. Dr. Hobbs gave instructions from Hebrews chapters 11 
and 12. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things unseen."

sion of the Liberty Baptist Association was adjourned.

Senior Adult Coordinator, Mrs. Evelyn Kepley, was introduced as she expressed the 
need to stimulate the energies of the senior adults in our congregations. 

Morris Hollifield gave a good report on the World Missions Conference. Thirty chur- 
ches participated with an average attendance each night throughout the association of 
977. Appreciation was expressed to Center Hill, Churchland, Coggins, and Wallburg who 
served as host churches. 

Leonard expressed deep appreciation for willingness of the churches to participate in 
assisting the West Virginia pastor with insurance premiums. Rev. Phalen told Leonard 
that Union Chapel now has 28 members with an average Sunday School attendance of 20 
and 28 to 50 for morning worship. He also explained how they were located in a county

hunger for our county in early 1986. A motion by Doug Huff and second by Al Martin and 
all points were approved.

for the association and it was carried.

any pastor in our association who would go to Togo. 

It was requested that the phone numbers of associational officers and committee 
members be printed in the minutes.

tional Student Ministries Committee and that this would come at a later time. 
Treasurer, Charles Penninger, gave the Treasurer's Report: 



Missions Committee chairman reported that the Missions Committee had discussed 
several mission possibilities and that there will be a called meeting on June 23. 

WMU director reported on a WMU Prayer Retreat at Southside Church with 60 in at- 
tendance, an Acteen Prayer Retreat, a GA Day Camp with 103 girls and leaders in April, 
also the State WMU 100 Year Celebration in Raleigh. There were approximately 100 per- 
sons who participated in the reception honoring Rev. and Mrs. Rollins on May 18. This 
was sponsored by the WMU in conjunction with Associational Emphasis Week. 

Brotherhood director encouraged participation in the Key Leadership Conference to 
be held at First Baptist Church, Lexington, July 15. 

Mr. Lyon gave notice of health problems and asked for someone else to assume the 
position of associational Brotherhood director. He expressed the joy of serving in this 
capacity and has felt blessed working for the Lord in this respect. 

The RA director reported on the car race held at Liberty Church with the winners parti- 
cipating at Gardner-Webb in the state competition. There were five churches at the

pressed the need to find someone to accept the responsibilities of associational Brother- 
hood director.

representative will be sharing with the pastors.

scheduled for May 10. Because of a lack of response it was felt that there v/ill be more 
participation if it was rescheduled. This date will be announced at the proper time. Let 
the record show that Carl Hemphill would prefer the workshop be held at the associa- 
tional office. (Something about his being the cook?) 
Leonard also gave the following reports: 

1. The VBS Clinics were a great success this year. Total attendance for the two confer- 
ences was 193 (last year was 146). 

2. Key Leadership Conferences, July 15 - 7:00-9:15 P.M., Lexington, First. There were 13 
attending the State Key Leadership Conferences at Ridgecrest. 

3. The associational office needs some kind of report on the Good News Revivals. So far 
only 10 of 34 churches participating have reported. 

4. Don't forget the pastor's appreciation luncheon, Thursday, May 22. 
UPDATE: 

1. In the appeal to undergird and support the life and health insurance of Rev. Robert 
Phalen of Greenfield, WV, six churches have responded with support for the $178.17 
premiums. 

2. We have a commitment to the "Baptist Hour" for all of 1986. 

3. The associational treasurer has received $2,387 in support of the Nigerian student in 
his efforts to return to his homeland. 

4. Leonard delivered a check in the amount of $2,497.10 to Rich Fork Church today. 
Gilbert Myers expressed grateful appreciation for the support shown to Rich Fork 
during this time. 

5. The Recovery Banquet for support of a local prison ministry was met with positive 
responses. The Local Board of Directors is moving toward employing a full-time 
chaplain. This chaplain may not necessarily be Baptist. This will be a non-denomina- 
tional ecumenical ministry. An appeal for financial support will come at a later time. 
It is felt that 30 to 32 thousand dollars will be needed to support this ministry. 

(An editorial from Vice Moderator Roy Cantrell:) 

The worst thing that can happen is for a pastor to stay so long at a place that he feels 
he knows how the congregation would react to a situation. Last year at a Key Leadership 
Conference, a layman said, "the pastors are not telling us what's going on." He asked 
that pastors not respond to appeal for their members, but instead let them decide for 
themselves how they feel led to serve. 

The meeting closed with prayer by Rev. Ron Jackson. 

SEPTEMBER 22, 1986 

Those present were welcomed by moderator. Brooks Hunt. He then called for Max Ev- 
ington to lead in scripture reading and prayer. Mr. Evington read from Ephesians 2 and 4, 
following with prayer request and prayer. 
The treasurer, Charles Penninger, gave his report:

Betty Bradshaw made the following recommendations from the Missions Committee. 
"In an effort to become more involved with the Bold Mission plans of reaching people for 
Christ, the Missions Committee wishes to recommend to our association that we spon- 
sor a student, an ordained minister, from Grenada for his education in the United States. 
This would start In the summer or fall of 1987. This type project would be in keeping with 
out state convention's suggestion for making use of mission funds that will be returned 



-31- 



to our association from our state missions offering in the fall The committee sees 

this as a way of being more personally involved and supportive of our mission work. We 
recognize too, a national could serve better than a missionary and without barriers to 
overcome. In the event of internal problems or objections to outsiders, the national 
pastor could continue to serve in his own country even if the missionary had to leave." 
Betty placed the recommendation into a motion which was seconded by David 
Whiteman. The following explanations were offered: 

1. Starting in the fall of 1986, 10% of the state missions offerings given through our 
churches will be returned to our association. This project would qualify our associa- 
tion for the refund. 

2. Rev. James must have a sponsor before he can get a student visa; transfer from 
Barbatos College may earn him ^V2 years college credits. 

3. Approval for the project will be sought at the annual meeting September 30. 

4. Rev. James will be prepared to come to the US and begin with the second session of 
summer school in 1987. 

5. He has the moral support of the Grenadian missionaries. 

6. He will be available to speak at local churches. 

The motion to proceed with support of Osbert James to Wingate College and then on 
to Seminary was accepted unanimously. 

Max Evington, chairman of the Finance Committee, gave explanations of the proposed 
budget. 

1. The Missions Committee requests of $4,900 for the Grenadian student and $2,000 for a 
Togo trip for Leonard were both honored by the new budget. 

2. Gave explanation of the total receipts from '85-'86, designated and undesignated, 
gave nearly an $8,000 surplus over the '86-'87 project budget needs. 

3. Encouraged churches to increase their gifts to the association for the next year. 

4. Reported a recommendation to discontinue sponsorship of the "Baptist Hour" and 
support for insurance premiums for Rev. Phalen of Bluefield, WVA. The Finance 
Committee felt this was necessary in light of expenditures required for the 
Grenadian student. 

WMU director, Barbara Foster, gave a WMU Report. At Key Leadership Conferences 
on July 15, there were 22 present in the WMU Conference. The WMU/Brotherhood Work- 
shop at Carolina Memorial Church on September 15 had 125 in attendance. October 31 
-November 1 there will be a Prayer Retreat at Caraway. Requested prayer for Bill and 
Evelyn Reece in Togo and Kim Dickey and her family. Kim is a two-year journeyman with 
the Foreign Mission Board in China. 

Marvin Lyon, Brotherhood director, reported a large group of men present at Key 
Leadership Conference for Brotherhood. From discussion on that night they agreed to 
meet September 20 to discuss further ways to pool manpower and resources to increase 
mission efforts in our association. Twelve attended the WMU/Brotherhood Workshop at 
Carolina Memorial. 

Charlie Foster, RA director, reported 19 RA counselors attended the WMU/Brother- 
hood Workshop representing 10 churches. There will be a Pioneer officers and counse- 
lors workshop at Caraway October 18 and 19. The Crusader and Pioneer Congress will be 
held at Wake Forest this year. 

Associational Sunday School Director David Whiteman reported a very successful Key 
Leadership Conference with 35 persons representing 19 churches. They learned of a plan 
for home based bible study to reach the unchurched. David announced that Andy Royals 
had given his resignation as Associational Outreach Leader. Dr. Whiteman gave notice 
of his recent resignation as associate minister to First Baptist Church, Lexington to ac- 
cept the pastorate at Memorial Baptist Church in Buies Creek. 

Leonard noted the need for an associational Sunday School Director, Outreach Leader 
and Brotherhood Director. There was not a mad rush of volunteers begging for these 
positions.

Rev. Roilins gave a good report on the Evangelism Rally. The offering of $225.03 taken 
at the rally was sent to the state convention and designated for Evangelism Outreach in 
Togo. It will be used for the expense of the Revival Crusades in March and April of 1987. 

We were reminded of the annual associational meetings on September 30 and October 
1. Also there will be a Senior Adult Rally at First Baptist in Lexington on October 19, 3:00 
P.M. with Dr. Perry Crouch as the keynote speaker. 

As in years past, we have done well on our budget, having a substantial balance at the 
close of the associational year. We have been applying part of that balance each year to 
the building loan. In response to applying part of the balance to the building loan, Ron 
Chapman made a motion that $4,000 out of our reserve be paid toward the principle. This 
passed unanimously. 

Leonard reminded us that no committee is allowed to spend more than $500 without 
permission from the Executive Committee. Seven hundred and fifty dollars is needed for 
painting the outside of the associational home. Carl Hemphill made a motion to allow 
this expenditure. Motion carried. 

There were no matters of new business. 

The final Executive Committee meeting of the 1985-86 associational year was closed 
with prayer by Dr. David Whiteman. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood, Clerk 

Missions Committee Report 

The elected leaders of our associational programs and organizations, and elected 
members that make up the Missions Committee, met five times during this past year. All 
were excited about what is happening in Liberty Association. 

At each meeting we heard reports from Leonard Rollins concerning updates and dis- 
cussion on various ministries going on in and concerning Liberty Association. 

Some high notes of our meetings consist of a map study of our county and possible 
location of new mission points. Sharing that Archie Jones of Chile needed carpenters 
and helpers during March 1986. 

The Missions Committee gave approval for the Director of Missions to assume all re- 
sponsibilities of any pastor that would volunteer for Togo. Dearl and Betty Bunce at Cog- 
gins Memorial would leave for Togo on March 30. Therefore, Leonard would take up the 
ministerial duties at that church while they were away. 

In May and also in a called meeting in June, much consideration was given to two 
items of great opportunity. One, an appeal for preachers to go to Togo in 1987 before the 
dedication of the bridge has been made. There is the possibility of Leonard returning. 
Therefore thought of financial help had to be considered. We recommend that $2,000 be 
put into the 1986-87 budget. 

Roy Cantrell and Barbara Foster were appointed to a committee to study and bring a 
report to the called meeting concerning sponsoring a Grenadian pastor/student. This be- 
ing our second item of great opportunity. This committee reported their findings and feel- 
ings. The student, Osbert James, desires to study at Wingate College and then seminary. 
He has definite plans to return to Grenada to serve. 

At the September meeting, the Missions Committee asked the Executive Committee to 
approve this project for the 1986-87 budget and for the Finance Committee to incorporate 
$4,900.00 into the 1986-87 budget. A formal recommendation of this project to be made at 
the September annual meeting. 

A letter from Doug Huff, pastor at Park Place Church, was read to the Missions Com- 
mittee in the September meeting. The letter concerned a house purchased by the church 
and asked for the committee's help in exploring a possible ministry.

The need for our churches to be more informed about all the ministries of Liberty 
Association was expressed by committee members. When we find opportunity to 
minister and are faithful, missions become very personal. 

Betty Bradshaw 

Report of Director of Missions 

Two major events that claimed our attention in the 1985-86 associational year were the 
World Missions Conference, October 6-13, 1985, (30 churches participating), and the 
Good News America Simultaneous Revivals, March 23-30, 1986, (33 churches par- 
ticipating). With an emphasis on missions and evangelism, we have experienced a very 
productive year. 

Nine volunteers have gone from our association to the West African nation of Togo. 
Under the leadership of Ron Beutel, we have started four ministerial support groups. We 
had our second World Hunger Conference in November and our third Associational 
Evangelism Rally in August. An Associational Training School was held at Southgate in 
February, and Tom Capps was able to enlist the "Jeremiah People" for a performance at 
Finch Auditorium in Thomasville on March 8. We had an outstanding response to the Key 
Leadership Conference in July, with 160 in attendance. 

In the kind of ministry that is carried out on a regular basis, I have been in 36 of the 43 
churches for at least one meeting during the calendar year. In addition to regular 
preaching services, I taught the book of Hebrews at Victory, Reeds, Carolina Memorial, 
Coggins Memorial, and Liberty. I taught the Home Mission Study nine times - at Reeds, 
Hasty, New Friendship, Stoner's Grove, Churchland, Welcome, First, Smith Grove, Jersey 
and Trinity. 

I spoke to Crusader RA's at Agro-Care Lodge, Associational Acteens, Liberty Baptist 
Church WMU, Stella Nichols Bible Study Group and Baptist Women at Lexington, First. I 
have shared my own experience from Togo 55 times, and this included First Baptist 
Church, New Bern, North Carolina, and Fork Baptist Church in Davie County. I served as 
pastor at Coggins Memorial for one month while Dearl and Betty Bunce served in Togo. I 
conducted four funeral services and assisted in one other. 

I participated in the following special events: Homecoming at Coggins Memorial, 
Reeds, Lick Creek, and North Lexington; Loyalty Dinner at Carolina Memorial; Area Con- 
ference and 100th birthday celebration at Mills Home; "Bib and Tucker" banquet at Lex- 
ington, First; North Lexington Deacons and Wives Christmas Party; Baptist Men's Day 
Breakfast at Churchland; Installation Service at Trinity for Ron Jackson, and Installation 
Service at Denton, First, for Clinton Hardee. I preached the Homecoming message at 
Oakview in High Point, preached in revival services at Peace's Chapel in Flat River Asso- 
ciation and Westchester in High Point, and also spoke in a World Missions Conference in 
the Theron Rankin Association. 

I was involved in Directors of Missions/Convention Staff Meeting at Caraway, Regional 
Evangelism Conference at Caraway, and Church Growth Conference and Christian Ac- 
tion League at Caraway. I attended the Baptist State Convention and Togo Reunion in 
Charlotte, State Evangelism Conference in Greensboro, State Vacation Bible School 
Clinic in Charlotte, Banquet at Southeastern Seminary for Supervisors in the Supervised 
Ministry Program, Key Leadership and Home Missions Week at Ridgecrest, Southern 
Baptist Convention in Atlanta, Togo get-together in King's Mountain, and the Directors of 
Missions Conference at Wingate. 

I have given assistance to pulpit committees at Greenwood, Denton, First, Cedar 
Lodge, and Mountain View; and have worked with the Program Committee, Finance 
Committee, and Nominating Committee. I served as supervisor for Gary Myers in the 
Supervised Ministry Program at Southeastern Seminary, and served on the Community 



-34- 



Services Committee for the Thomasville Ministerial Association. 

We need to give attention now to tlie Senior Adult Rally in October, the commitment to 
bringing a student from Grenada to this country to study, and the paying off of all in- 
debtedness of the associational office.

Leonard Rollins 

Woman's Missionary Union Centennial 

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy . . . we will tell the 
next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has 
done . . . being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose." 
(Psalm 126:3, Psalm 78:4b, Philippians 2:2 NIV). 

This Scripture has been chosen for the national centennial of Woman's Missionary 
Union. The purpose of this centennial celebration is fourfold: 

1. To reflect upon the heritage of Woman's Missionary Union. 

2. To experience anew the sense of mission and purpose that characterized our 
predecessors. 

3. To affirm the missions purpose of Woman's Missionary Union. 

4. To focus upon and strengthen the potential of Woman's Missionary Union in its 
second century. 

All churches in Liberty Association, with or without Woman's Missionary Union, 
should be aware of and participate in this celebration. 

Assisting all of our churches is a priority of the associational Woman's Missionary 
Union officers this year. 1988 will indeed be a significant year for Baptists as we cele- 
brate the national centennial of Woman's Missionary Union. Quality missions education 
and growth in membership will insure the future work of our beloved union. 



A CENTURY TO CELEBRATE 




A FUTURE TO FULFILL 



WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION CENTENNIAL LOGO 

The circle on the left represents the past; the circle on the right represents the future. 

The circles overlap, as do the past and future in real life. The present is always a com- 
bination of what has been and what is becoming. The two circles also represent the two 
halves of the world, the missions field which Woman's Missionary Union has served for 
these 100 years. When the circles overlap, they form the shape of the permanent WMU 
logo, first chosen in 1913. 

The flame is a contemporary version of one of the elements of the permanent WMU 
logo. Miss Emma Whitfield, designer of the original logo, indicated that the torch repre- 
sented Jesus, the Light of the world. The three parts of the flame further symbolize the 
Trinity. The numeral 1 completes the logo to form the symbol 100, representing WMU's 
first 100 years of service as "laborers together with God." The numeral 1 also represents 
the individual who with other individuals comprise Woman's Missionary Union.

Evangelism Report 1985-86 



"But it is not for these alone ttiat I pray, but for tfiose also who through their 
words put their faith in me; may they all be one: as thou, Father, art in me, 
and I in thee, so also may they be in us, that the world may believe that thou 
didst send me." John 17:20-21 

The magnificent obsession carried in the heart of God from the foundation of the 
world is that His people might know Him and in knowing Him, might have Life. It was to 
that end that Jesus offered His high priestly prayer in John 17. 

That is what real evangelism is all about! Real evangelism is sharing his words 
through the power of His Spirit as people come to our churches to hear, and as we go 
among the people day by day. The churches of Liberty Baptist Association are endeavor- 
ing to be good stewards in both regards. In 1986 our association found itself intimately 
involved in our convention-wide "Good News America" simultaneous revivals. At least 32 
of our 43 churches held services during the scheduled weeks (March 16-April 8). Many 
shared in New Testament distributions in their respective communities, did appropriate 
surveys, and in other ways prayed, planned, and prepared for revival. 

An event enjoyed by those who participated was our annual Evangelism Rally held at 
the First Baptist Church in Thomasville on August 31. A good representative crowd was 
present. Our own people shared in and led the two-hour service. Our own Rev. Warren 
Kerr preached one of the two sermons. Dr. Harper Shannon, Director of Evangelism and 
Assistant to the Executive Director for the State of Alabama, preached the other. 

In addition to these cooperative efforts, our churches have been encouraged to partici- 
pate in their new local efforts in evangelism using whatever methods at their disposal- 
Sunday School evangelism, crusade evangelism, visitation evangelism, lifestyle evange- 
lism. 1986-87 will find us emphasizing evangelism among special groups- singles, 
formerly married, ethnics, children and others. As we share in this our task, may we 
remember that evangelism is something we do as we go, is something we do with per- 
sons (not objects), and is something we do out of a profound sense of love for our Savior 
and for those with whom we share. He is already praying for those who through our 
words put their faith in Him.

Dearl L. Bunce 

Student Ministry Report 

I am thankful for those in our association who had the wisdom some two years ago to 
reach out to our county's young adults on a campus where there was no organized Chris- 
tian witness. Because of your concern and your increased financial support, last year we 
were able to expand our ministry on campus and to offer horizon-expanding oppor- 
tunities off campus. 

We continued our weekly on campus meetings during fall, winter, and spring quarters 
reaching out to some 65 students. 

Our increased budget enabled us to sponsor Mtme artist Mark McMasters on campus 
for two performances interpreting the Christian life through drama. Also, this year for the 
first time, our group was able to end our year with a retreat at Agro-Care - a time for 
reflection and personal commitment. 

But the Baptist style of student ministry is not just Bible study, retreats, and 
fellowship. Our core group of 15 students last year gave over $80 to mission causes and 
sponsored a Christmas party for underprivileged children. Nine of us also spent three 
days in Chapel Hill in February working with Orange County's Habitat for Humanity in a 

-36- 



renovation project. This hands-on opporutnity for ministry made a real impact on these 
middle class college students as they worked to provide three additional livable 
bedrooms to a black family of 10 sleeping in two bedrooms. 

Our year ahead is promising. I spent this weekend at Ridgecrest among some 700 col- 
lege students, four from DCCC. Students there representing some 40 college and uni- 
versity campuses pledged themselves to the task of raising $48,000 for student missions 
next summer. Three of the four students from our campus got applications to apply to 
serve the Lord by giving their summers to missions. So I bring you a good word about 
young adults today. Not all can be called apathetic and selfish. Christ's power and 
presence is alive in today's young adults. 

From our ranks at DCCC have come two students now in Baptist seminaries and 
another committed to go after college. We have had two students who have served on 
staff at our Baptist assembly. Our group has led worship services in some of your chur- 
ches as well as youth retreats and fellowships. 

Student ministry is challenging students to give their best to Christ, exposing them to 
missions and ministry, preparing them to hear God's direction in service through His 
church and reaching students for commitment to Christ. 

We need your prayers as a new dimension begins through our Associational Student 
Ministry Committee. There is a great need to explore other possibilities to reach students 
and young adults in Davidson County. Pray also that those of us directly involved with 
the students may discern how best to challenge and reach those who are our future.

Historian's Report - 1986 

In compliance with a resolution passed in 1959, the historian's report to the associa- 
tion includes brief histories of the churches hosting the annual meeting, with information 
furnished by the pastor or a designated person from the host church. 

Continuation of tine History of 
Carolina Memorial Baptist Church 

(This is presented as written by the present pastor of the church, Rev. Carl Hemphill.) 

The first recorded' history of Carolina Memorial Baptist Church was presented at the 
annual meeting and appeared in the minutes of the Liberty Baptist Association in 1964. 
An update of the history was presented and became a part of the minutes in 1975. Now, 
11 years later we present another update of the church history. 

According to the information received from an old record book and by word of mouth, 
it seems that the church began in homes in the Jewel Cotton Mill section of Thomasville 
but finally found a permanent location in 1930 on property donated by Mr. Eugene Carter 
on Carolina Avenue. It was named Carolina Avenue Baptist Church. The church remained 
in that location until 1963 when it moved and built a modern building on the corner of 
Liberty Drive and Sunrise Avenue. The name was then changed to Carolina Memorial 
Baptist Church. Since 1930, the church has been served by nine different pastors: 
Richard West was the first and Carl Hemphill is the present pastor. It was noted that 
most of the pastors served from two to three years except John Cox, who was pastor for 
10 years, and the present pastor, who has just passed his twenty-ninth year. 

Since history is still being written, we will look mainly at the achievements of the 

■42- 



church during the past 11 years. A house and lot that joined the parking lot were pur- 
chased and a building was erected for the bus and van. More parking space was also ad- 
ded. 

Perhaps the things that are noteworthy are the accomplishments that have affected 
the congregation of the church. A Senior Citizen Auxiliary was organized and is function- 
ing well. A Children's Church was added and is doing a great job with volunteer workers 
during the eleven o'clock worship service. Other organizations that are alive and well are 
the Brotherhood and WMU. The Brotherhood helped in a financial way in building a 
church in West Virginia. They also purchased an ox for the needy in Africa. The WMU and 
the Sunday School sponsored a financial drive that raised $2,000.00 to send Mrs. Evelyn 
Reece to Togo, Africa. At the time of this writing, Evelyn and her husband, Bill, are back 
in Togo with their expenses practically raised by these organizations. 

Another thing of great importance that has happned this year was when one of the 
young ladies of the church, Kimberly Dickey, a graduate of Wake Forest, felt the call of 
God and offered herself as a journeyman of the Southern Baptist Convention to go to 
China. She is now in Shanghai. Along with these happenings of particular people, the 
church gave $36,000.00 to all mission causes last year and has been raising the 
Cooperative Program $1,000.00 per year for the past several years. This past year the 
church gave over $9,000.00 for the Lottie Moon Foreign Mission Offering. 

With the many tangible things that are evidence of church growth, one thing is hardly 
ever recorded and that is the spirit of love and cooperation among the people and the 
pastor. This was exemplified in 1981, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the present pastor 
and his wife, when the congregation pulled a great surprise and presented the pastor and 
his wife a Grandfather Clock and a prepaid and preplanned trip to Japan, Taiwan and 
Hong Kong, with the privilege of visiting a missionary couple in Japan, Dr. and Mrs. C.F. 
Clark. 

This was written by Carl Hemphill, the present pastor who has completed 29 years with 
the church that is only 56 years old.

We continue the historian's report today with the histories of the churches hosting the 
annual meeting of Liberty Baptist Association and express our appreciation to those 
who furnished information. 

A Brief History of Hasty Baptist Churcli 

(This information was taken from a booklet used at the observance of the 
Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the church on November 7, 1982.) 

Early in September 1955, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Lott, Mrs. John Hayes, and Inman 
Stewart made plans to begin a revival meeting in a building owned by Mr. and Mrs. Lott. 
The building was on Ball Park Road. At the conclusion of the revival three week later, it 
was decided to continue having preaching services twice weekly with John Hayes and In- 
man Stewart alternating in conducting the services. Mr. and Mrs. Lott gave much encour- 
agement and support to the work. 

The Ball Park Mission, as it was known at that time, had the approval of the Rich Fork 
Baptist Church and of the First Baptist Church of Thomasville. Later First Baptist with- 
drew sponsorship of the work, but Rich Fork continued to give financial support to the 
mission for two years. The first year, this support was the weekly salary of Rev. Stewart; 
the second year, Rich Fork gave $50.00 a month into a building program for the mission. 

On January 1, 1957, Sunday School was begun in the mission with the following four 



-43- 



classes: Adults, Young People, Juniors and Beginners. Approximately 52 persons were 
enrolled in Sunday School the first Sunday. Mr. Bruce Hayes was elected the first Sunday 
School Superintendent. A few months later, a Training Union was started. Mrs. Lott was 
the first Training Union director. She also served as Adult Sunday School teacher and 
filled several other offices. 

Later in the same year, the mission made a request of the Liberty Baptist Association 
that it be organized into a Baptist church. On November 10, 1957, the Liberty Baptist 
Associational Missions Committee met to consider the request. After examination, the 
committee gave unanimous approval to the mission's request and set November 24, 
1957, as the date when the organization would take place. 

On Sunday afternoon, November 24, 1957, in the Hasty School auditorium, Rev. W.N. 
Brookshire, moderator of the Liberty Baptist Association, called the meeting to order. 
Present were representatives from 23 churches in the association, including 16 pastors 
and about 40 laymen. 

Following the usual procedure, the mission was constituted into a Baptist church with 
33 members. It was then voted to call the new church "Hasty Baptist Church" and to call 
Rev. Inman Stewart as pastor. Rev. Julian Hopkins, Secretary of Evangelism, gave the 
charge to the church. He used Luke 14:25-33 as the text. 

In 1959, the church moved into its new two-story educational building and temporary 
auditorium. The records show a church membership of 42 and a Sunday School enroll- 
ment of 90 at that time. 

In April of 1966, the first service was held in the present sanctuary. The church 
membership at that time was 200, the Sunday School enrollment was 232. 

The growth of Hasty Church has not been the work of one person or group, but many 
people and many groups have contributed to the work. The credit for its success belongs 
to a cooperative and progressive spirit on the part of the congregation, and the glory 
belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Dr. William A. Sutphin, Jr. is the present pastor of the church. An interesting note may 
be added that in the almost 29 years of existence, there have only been four pastors: 
Rev. Stewart, Rev. Robert Cloninger, Rev. Jim Jones and Dr. Sutphin. 

History of Victory Baptist Cliurch 

(Information furnished by Cheryl Eddinger, Church Clerk) 

Victory Baptist Mission was organized July 18, 1954. Services were held in a tobacco 
pack house owned by Calvin Bowers. The mission was under the leadership of Rev. 
Grady Shuler from Greenwood Baptist Church in Thomasville. 

On October 14, 1954, three months after its beginning, the mission was organized into 
a church with 26 charter members. Victory Missionary Baptist Church was chosen as the 
name and Rev. Shuler was called as the first pastor. One year later, the church became a 
member of Liberty Baptist Association. 

In December 1954, land was purchased for building a sanctuary and for a cemetery. By 
April 1956, construction of the building had progressed so that services were held in the 
basement. In December 1959, the building was completed and services were held in the 
new sanctuary. 

A Woman's Missionary Union was organized September 25, 1961. 
In the late sixties, under the leadership of Rev. Troy Clement, a fellowship building was 
constructed. 

On November 4, 1975, the church voted to build a parsonage on the corner of the 
church property. In December, the deacons presented plans to the church; the plans 
were accepted and construction was begun. 

In January 1978, a new baptistry was completed; in April a baptistry painting was pur- 
chased; and in August, astro-turf was installed on the front steps of the church. 

-44- 



In January 1980, the fellowship hall was remodeled and the church added drop ceilings 
and recessed lights. 

In May 1982, a new air conditioner was installed in the church, a burglar system was 
installed in the office and a copier was purchased. 

In November 1984, Rev. Gary Myers became pastor of Victory Baptist Church. During 
his ministry, the church purchased an activity bus, built a ramp for easier access into the 
building and installed air conditioning in the parsonage. The church now has a member- 
ship of 144. Rev. Myers, the present pastor, continues to lead the church in its spiritual 
development and in its outreach, ministry and witness.

contacted by a committee appointed by the Association, to ascertain the wishes and

Standing Resolutions 

Ordination of New Ministers 

It is strongly recommended as the position of this Association: 

1. That, when a church desires to put forth a candidate for examination and ap- 
proval for ordination to the full work of the Gospel Ministry, an Examining Council 
composed of a committee of five elected by the Association in annual meeting, plus 
the pastors and one layman from each cooperating church in the fellowship of the 
Liberty Baptist Association, be summoned by written invitation of at least one week 
in advance from the church nominating the candidate. 

2. That the examination of the candidate be conducted by the Examining Council 
and that a report of its findings be given to the nominating church. If the report is fav- 
orable the nominating church will set the date of ordination and notify the member 
churches. 

3. That we ordain only those who have received a definite call to become a pastor, 
an associate pastor, or an educational director of a Baptist church on regular stand- 
ing in the Association or those who have felt a call to the mission field, the chaplain- 
cy of our armed forces or the chaplaincy of a public institution whose church shall 
have requested in writing his ordination before the call of the ordaining council shall 
be approved. 

Policies for the Establishment of Missions 

1. Definite sponsorship by an established church. 

2. Sponsoring church to work in cooperation with Associational Missions Commit- 
tee. 

3. Sponsoring church to retain control of Mission until such time as the church 
and the Associational Missions Committee agree that the Mission is self-sufficient. 

4. Sponsoring church to call Mission pastor and select all workers in the Mission. 

5. Sponsoring church to encourage Mission from the beginning to give a definite 
percentage of the offering plate dollar through the Cooperative Program and Associ- 
ational Missions. 

6. Sponsoring church should insist upon a full and well-defined program of South- 
ern Baptist Work in the Mission, using the Southern Baptist literature. 

7. Sponsoring church to work with the Associational Missions Committee in prop- 
erly locating the Mission. 

8. Sponsoring church to work with the Mission in planning of new buildings, using 
the services of the Church Planning Department of the Baptist State Convention.

Organization and Adnriission of New Cliurches 

Recognizing the right of the Association to determine its own membership and be- 
ing aware of the importance of the manner in which the churches are organized, we 
recommend that any group of individuals desiring to organize themselves into a new 
church with the purpose of seeking recognition of and fellowship and cooperation 
with the Association be requested to meet the following standards: 

1. Notice shall be given to the Moderator of the desire to organize a church before 
any such organization takes place. The Moderator will then ask the Missions Com- 
mittee to study and pass upon the need for and the practicability of such an organi- 
zation. 

2. That the location of said church shall be sufficiently removed so as not to in- 
terfere with the work or encroach upon the territory of the churches already affiliated 
with the Association. This will be determined by the Missions Committee. 

3. Upon being approved by the Missions Committee the group will then request 
this committee to examine the church covenant, articles of faith, and constitution (if 
a constitution has been adopted) of the proposed church. Should the committee ap- 
prove the covenant, articles of faith, and constitution, the group will proceed at a 
later date to be constituted into a Baptist church of the same faith and order.

SARA KNAPP 



Sara Knapp served as historian for Liberty Baptist Association from September 26, 
1973 until September 30, 1987. 

Sara was born in the Churchland Community to John N. and Emma Sharpe Penninger. 
She had two brothers, John, Jr. and Charles, and a foster sister, Effie Trexler Tate. Sara 
attended Churchland Elementary School until she was in the fourth grade. At that time 
her family moved to Linwood where she enrolled in school. She is a graduate of Linwood 
High School, Pfeiffer Jr College and Appalachian State Teachers College (now A.S.U.).

In response to the proposed budget, Rev. Carl Hemphill asked that the Moderator and 
the Director of Missions investigate the possibility of receiving the TV broadcast ACTS. 
This request in light of the fact that the Baptist Hour has been discontinueo. 

Rev. John Pace introduced a recommendation from the 25th Anniversary Committee 
for consideration and will call for a vote after the dinner hour. 

Al Martin led again in the singing of "The Church's One Foundation". 

On behalf of Churchland and Lakeview Baptist churches, Mrs. Mary Kessler gave 
words of welcome to all present. 

Special music was by Al Martin, Betty Bunce, John Yates and Ed Holmes of our Music 
Committee, accompanied by Miss Beverly Wilson on the organ. 

The annual sermon was introduced with Scripture Acts 1:8-9 and Matthew 28:16-20 by 
Rev. Warren Kerr. The message was delivered by the Reverend Jake Sharpe with a vision 
for lost souls. 

The benediction was offered by Rev. Edward Pigg and all were dismissed for the dinner 
meal. Churchland and Lakeview Baptist churches were gracious hosts for the meal. 

The first session resumed at 7:15 P.M. with "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" and 
"He Lives" led again by Al Martin. 

Our worship time was led by Margaret and Osbert James. Margaret began with words 
of testimony and concluded with a testimony in song "There Is Power in the Name of the 
Lord". Osbert praised Liberty Baptist Association for being a foundation for Baptist work 
in Grenada. His testimony of God's plan for his future was so beautifully presented. 

During the miscellaneous business Rev. Pace made a motion that the body accept the 
recommendation of the 25th Anniversary Committee. The motion was carried by a stand- 
ing vote as Rev. and Mrs. Rollins were escorted back into the sanctuary. The complete 
report follows. 

Rev. Allen Welborn introduced a recommendation from the Evangelism Committee. 
The recommendation is "that Dr. Bailey Smith be invited to conduct a county-wide 
crusade April 17-22, 1988". This would be entered for a vote on Wednesday morning. 

A report on the Campus Ministry at Davidson County Community College was given by 
Mrs. Gaylin Huff and follows. 

Rev. Morris Hollifield introduced our Director of Missions as follows: "On December 
16, 1962, there was a called meeting of the Executive Committee of the Liberty Baptist 
Association. During that meeting the committee received, and accepted with regrets, the 
resignation of the Associational Missionary. 

"There was lengthy discussion about some guidelines to enable the next missionary 
to best serwe all the churches of the association. 

"Before the meeting adjourned the Missions Committee was asked to proceed in find- 
ing someone to fill this important place of leadership. 

"Approximately 3 months later the Executive Committee met for its regular February 
meeting. A part of the agenda was to consider calling an Associational Missionary. I 
want you to hear what happened as recorded by Doris Lopp, then Secretary of the Mis- 
sions Committee. I quote from her report: 'In February the Committee made a decision of 
vital importance to the Association. With a feeling that spiritual wisdom had been im- 
pacted to us in this matter. Rev. Leonard Rollins was unanimously chosen by the com- 
mittee as our nominee for Associational Missionary. Later in February, acting upon the 
recommendation of the Missions Committee, the Executive Committee of the Associa- 
tion elected Rev. Rollins who began work on March 11, 1963.' 

"How did the Executive Committee respond in that vote? Hear the report written by the 
Clerk for that February meeting, and I quote: 'A motion was made and seconded that the 
Missions Committee's recommendation be adopted. Following discussion there was a 
standing unanimous vote approving the recommendation to call Rev. Leonard Rollins as 
missionary.' 

"Since March 11, 1963, Rev. Rollins has sensed in that capacity. It is again with deep 
appreciation that we welcome our Director of Missions for an annual report."

A copy of the report of the Director of Missions was given by Rev. Rollins and follows. 

Rev. Morris Hollifield introduced Mrs. Sara Knapp, Historian: "Mrs. Sara P. Knapp 
began serving as Historian for the Liberty Association in the fall of 1973. She followed in 
the footsteps of several illustrious leaders who diligently labored to preserve accurate 
records and significant accounts of church life. Working in cooperation with pastors and 
church clerks, Mrs. Knapp has shared information for 14 years. These reports have pro- 
vided histories, or updates, on 38 churches. During these years, 30 churches have helped 
to host the annual association. Eight churches have assisted twice. 

"In concluding her work as Historian, Mrs. Knapp will share histories on the two chur- 
ches hosting today's meeting. Tomorrow she will share from two other churches hosting 
Wednesday's session. Mrs. Knapp, will you please come now and give your report." 

A copy of the Historian's Report follows.

the Lord", and Bill told of seeing the finished wells, ponds and of operating heaving 
equipment.

and discussion followed. Allen expressed full support for this effort with high recommen- 
dations for Dr. Smith and need for evangelism. Rev. Carl Hemphill expressed concern for

Report and Recommendations of the 
25th Anniversary Committee for 
Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins 

Last year at the Annual Session this committee was created and given the twofold 
task of: 

1. Planning and carrying out a suitable 25th anniversary recognition celebration for 
Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins, our Director of Missions for Liberty Association. 

2. We were to study their circumstances to be certain that adequate preparations were 
being made for their future retirement. 

The committee was composed of: 

Rev. John Pace, Reeds Baptist Church 
Rev. Morris Holllfleld, Jersey Baptist Church 

Mrs. Evelyn Kepley, Lexington First Baptist Church o 
Mr. Robert Carroll, Denton First Baptist Church 
Ms. Doris Lopp, Liberty Baptist Church 
Mr. Nolan Reid, Wallburg Baptist Church 
Rev. Roy Cantrell, Abbotts Creek Baptist Church, ex officio 
The committee has met four times for discussion and planning sessions. Out of these 
sessions have come a wide variety of ideas and discussions, out of which have come the 
following recommendations. 
I. In recognition of the fact that Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins began their service as 
Director of Missions in the Liberty Baptist Association by vote of the Executive Com- 



-26- 



mittee on March 11, 1963, it is our recommendation that a reception be held in their 
honor on Sunday, March 13, 1988, at Lexington First Baptist Church, between the 
hours of 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. This is to be a time of thanksgiving and Christian 
fellowship and rejoicing to be shared by all of the churches of the association. No 
other program or activities are planned for this time. Since it would be Impossible for 
everyone to be there at the same time, churches will be asked to come during a cer- 
tain staggered time frame if at all possible. This schedule will be worked out by the 
committee and churches will be notified of the time schedule at a later date. The ap- 
proximate cost to the association will be $600.00. If this report is adopted, the Finance 
Committee of the association is asked to appropriate the necessary funds for this ex- 
pense. 

II. In recognition of the fact that the report of the Executive Committee of the associa- 
tion was adopted by the full body at the annual meeting of the association on 
September 24, 1963, it is our recommendation that the association ask the Program 
Committee for 1988 to cooperate with the Celebration Committee In arranging the 
program so that a majority of the evening session on Tuesday, September 27, 1988, 
can be given over to a more formal and official celebration of this anniversary. This 
needs to be acted upon now so that plans can be made soon for inviting speakers, 
and other necessary arrangements. 

III. The third part of our recommendation will deal with our study of their circumstances 
in preparation for future retirement. It is our opinion that In most areas of concern the 
association has been very adequate in planning for this eventuality. The one place 
where nothing has been done is in housing for retirement. No plans have been made 
up to this time about a retirement home. We have determined that the Rollins family 
does plan to remain in our area upon retirement. 

Furthermore, in looking into this matter, we have been confronted with the fact that 
the trend for housing for Directors of Missions is definitely toward providing housing 
allowances and making it possible for these people to make their own arrangements 
for housing, choosing the area, the site and the house of their choice. 
All of these considerations, plus the fact that your committee feels that the associa- 
tion would want to do something significant for them on this 25th anniversary, leads us 
to recommend that the Liberty Baptist Association, at its Annual Meeting on September 
27, 1988, sell to Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins the house and lot where they now live, at 
the price that the association paid for it when it was purchased In 1959, that Is $20,000.00. 
Furthermore, that the association finance the sale at no Interest so that by the normal 
time of retirement for Rev. Rollins (September 1, 1992) the house can be paid for. If this 
report is approved, it is requested that the Finance Committee of the association provide 
a housing allowance, beginning October 1, 1988, to cover the usual expenses Incurred In 
these matters. It is further suggested that a reasonable amount be Included for repay- 
ment to the association in order for the house to be debt-free by the time of Rev. Rollln's 
retirement. Furthermore, the trustees of the association shall draw up all of the 
necessary papers for a legal transfer to be made at the September 27, 1988 meeting. 

We are in no way saying that they must retire at any certain date. We are saying let's 
make it possible for them to do so at any time that they choose. 

We have checked this with a certified public accountant and with an attorney to do our 
best to make the transaction legal so that it will not become entangled with taxes on this 
gift. 

Conclusion 

These two very dear people have invested 25 years of their lives In the work of the chur- 
ches of the Liberty Baptist Association and In the work of the Kingdom of God here In our 
beloved Davidson County. It is the sincere feeling of your committee that they fully de- 
serve this recognition, and whatever money that Is involved to the association will be 
money well spent. 

Submitted by your Committee

trustees were to be instructed to use their judgment and act accordingly.

Leonard reported on the Sunday School Training School. There was a total of 69 en- 
rolled representing 14 churches. There were 23 applications for study course awards. 
Response was very poor in preschool, children and youth. There will be a reevaluation of 
the worth of continuation. 

Key Leadership Conferences will be August 13 at Center Hill Baptist Church, 7:00-9:15 
P.M. 

Pastor's Appreciation Day was met with success. It was not our intent that this be an 
annual event. 

The Lottery Bill was killed in this session of the Senate. Paul Smith of Salisbury is on a 
committee for horse and dog racing. Leonard sent a stern letter of non-support and inten- 
tion to defeat the effort. 

A motion was made that Liberty churches go on record as voting against the proposal 
of horse and dog racing. 

Leonard gave several names to add to prayer requests. 

Moderator, Roy Cantrell, said the apartment would be available in Wingate on July 1. 
We still need a stove, refrigerator, bedroom suite, den suite, bookcases, and kitchen 
dinette set. 

Meeting was adjourned. 



SEPTEMBER 21, 1987 



Moderator Roy Cantrell called the meeting to order.

REPORTS: 

WMU: Barbara reported a sincere commitment on the WMU Council and a record at- 
tendance of 191 for the WMU/Brotherhood Leadership Conference. There will be a WMU 
Prayer Retreat October 30-31. The joint mission action project with Brotherhood for 
school supplies was overwhelming. There was in excess of two van loads of supplies. 

BROTHERHOOD: Gilmer Beck attended a planning meeting In Winston-Salem to plan 
the NC Baptist Men's Conference. He was very pleased also with the workshop at Center 
Hill Church. 

RA'S: There were 14 churches represented with 28 persons in attendance at the RA 
Workshop. Charlie showed the new logo for RA's. The Wake Forest football game this 
year will be October 17. There will be no meal provided this year. There will be a RA

Church at 3:00 P.M. December 26 Tom Stock will take a group of high school juniors and 
seniors on a work trip to Barbados. 

EVANGELISM: Allen Welborn reported of the success of the Evangelism Conference a 
week ago. After these meetings a group met to express concern about revival in the 
Liberty Association. Prayer meeting is being held at Greenwood Church every Tuesday, 
7:00 P.M. for the expressed purpose of praying. He told of a desire for a county-wide 
evangelistic crusade in early spring 1989. Let the record show, there was no sermonette. 

25TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE REPORT: John Pace gave a report and recom- 
mendations of the 25th Anniversary Committee for Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins. The 
complete report is attached with these minutes.

MISSIONS COMMITTEE: Betty Bradshaw brought the Missions Committee recom- 
mendation that Leonard Rollins and Brooks Hunt represent Liberty Baptist Association 
in accepting the challenge from the Foreign Mission Board to enter into partnership with 
Baptist Associations in Brazil. The cost to Liberty Association for this survey/planning 
trip would be approximately $2,400. This recommendation was seconded and carried. 

DOM: Leonard expressed appreciation of the vote and willingness for our association 
to plan for a new mission venture. 

He read a portion of a letter from the Department of Social Services of Davidson Coun- 
ty for the generous response of school supplies for the D.C. Foster Children. 

Leonard entered a plea for increased budgeting of our churches to the associational 
budget for the expenses of Wingate student, Osbert James. Wingate College gave one- 
half of Osbert's tuition for 1987-88. 

Osbert made two A's on his summer school courses. He has been working for campus 
maintenance 14 hours a week. This has been put on hold temporarily until questions con- 
cerning his Visa can be answered. 

Roy Cantrell gave as a matter of information that Wayne Rowbottom had been sent as 
a church planter to Tabago this summer. 

Mrs. Evelyn Ward invited everyone to First Baptist Church, Thomasville for a Crusade 
October 16-18. Evangelist Snipes from Atlanta will be leading with the preaching. First 
Church, Thomasville has great expectations from this Crusade. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood 
Associational Clerk 

Missions Committee Report 

The highlights of our four Missions Committee meetings this year are as follows: 

At the first meeting we heard read a letter from Osbert James. He had received the 
news that Liberty Association would be his sponsor. 

The date for Leonard's second trip to Togo was announced as April 2-14, 1987. 

Barbara Foster was asked to compile a list of needs for the James family. This list was 
presented at the March meeting. A letter of explanation and the list of needs was mailed 
to each church in our association in April. It was suggested that May 24 be designated 
Pastor's Appreciation Day. Each church was encouraged to give recognition to their 
pastor. 

A reception, June 28, at the associational office, was planned for Osbert and Margaret 
James. This was to give them a welcome and also an opportunity for us to meet them. 

Our associational Baptist Men, led by Noel Helms, were to provide a car for the James. 

The Foreign Mission Board is challenging NC Baptists to join with the Sao Paulo Bap- 
tists in Brazil to form a partnership for the purpose of construction of buildings, revival 
preaching, and church growth. This project is set for 1988-1992. A motion was made and 
carried that reads: "That the Liberty Baptist Association enter into a cooperative agree- 
ment with Baptists of Brazil to assist them in evangelism and discipling of Christians and 
construction of church buildings, pending the adoption by the NC Baptist State Conven- 
tion." 

At the last meeting, September 21, a recommendation was made to the Executive 
Committee to send Leonard Rollins and Brooks Hunt to Brazil to participate in the plan- 
ning process. 

Betty Bradshaw, Chairman 
Missions Committee

Baptist Men's Report 



The Baptist Men of our association are trying to "get on tlieir feet and off their seat"! I 
would like to share a few items of interest for our Baptist Men. Please share this informa- 
tion with the Baptist Men of your church: 

1. There will be a meeting for the Baptist Men's President of our association on Sun- 
day, November 1 at 3:00. Please meet at the associational office. 

2. The North Carolina Baptist Men's Convention will be held at the First Baptist 
Church in Winston-Salem, November 7-9. The Sunday morning breakfast will be 
served at the Benton Convention Center, downtown Winston-Salem. 

3. The Baptist Men of our association will be going to Fort Caswell November 13-16, 
to work on our facilities. Wives ARE invited to come! 

4. By the beginning of 1988, we are planning to have an associational "Fix-it Crew" to 
work together with the Davidson County Senior Services. This crew will be 
available to assist in the small repair jobs to the low-income senior adult homes' of 
Davidson County. Please be in prayer for this project. 

If you would like to know more about any of the above, or need information about start- 
ing a Baptist Men's group in your church, please contact Leonard Rollins or myself. 

In His Service, 
Noel T. Helms 

Migrant Missions 

"Migrants come each year to our area and county, and since they were not being min- 
istered to on a regular basis, the Lord had placed a burden on my heart concerning them. 
After much prayer, and finally being obedient, the Lord began to direct me to the people 
needed to carry out the mission. On June 28, 1987, at an associational event, I shared the 
burden with Rev. Roy Cantrell who suggested that I might contact Rev. Carlos Oliveros at 
Union Grove Baptist Church in Kernersville to get ideas on beginning a ministry such as 
this. After meeting Rev. Oliveros and his wife, Jean, plans were made and he agreed to 
come to make initial contact with the migrants on the Old Greensboro Road and sur- 
rounding area. Health Kits, provided by our Baptist churches and WMU's, were given to 
the migrants along with Spanish Tracts, on Tuesday, July 28, 1987. After more planning, 
and a second visit in August, we invited them to a fellowship meeting at Victory Baptist 
Church. Pastor Gary Myers and the congregation have so graciously provided their 
church and facilities for this ministry. We met there on Saturday, September 12, for 
preaching and fellowship. A follow-up visit was made to give each of the migrants a pic- 
ture of themselves. Our prayer is that seeds of faith were planted in the hearts of these 
men. Eight out of 16 contacts had attended the meeting. Missions is here - they have 
come to us. Are we going to reach out and touch their lives? The challenge is ours as an 
association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Brenda Emmons 

Report of Director of Missions 

The 1986-87 associational year will be remembered as the year of the "Second Togo 
Experience". I served as a preacher on the last evangelistic team to go in as a part of a 
nationwide revival effort. The dates were April 1-15. I discovered that the churches I 
worked with in 1985 had grown tremendously. I saw 111 make professions of faith in the 



-35- 



three churches that I preached in this year. The Togo Partnership was ended in June, and 
some of the results are as follows: 

42 preaching points, including 18 churches 

Health education seminars for 42 villages and a literacy program 
113 wells 

16 Catchment basins 
2 bridges and a pharmacy 
1,200 people already baptized 
1,000 awaiting baptism 

I continue to share the Togo experience and will be going this fall to First Baptist 
Church, Sanford, and First Baptist Church, Stoneville, as part of their Lottie Moon 
Christmas Offering emphasis. 

A new venture in Volunteer Missions is ahead of us, and Brooks Hunt, pastor of Wall- 
burg, and I will be going to Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 15-22. This Partnership Mission 
will link associations in North Carolina with associations in the state of Sao Paulo for 
three to five years. The Brazilians have asked for such linkages to help them in the begin- 
ning of 1,000 new churches by the year 1992. 

In the kind of ministry that is carried out on a regular basis, I have been in 36 of the 43 
churches for at least one meeting during the calendar year. In addition to regular preach- 
ing services, I taught the book of James at Reeds, Tyro, Summerville, and Liberty. I 
taught the Home Mission study eight times - at Carolina Memorial, Smith Grove, Jersey, 
Lexington, First, Thomasville, First, Reeds, Liberty, and Center Hill. I previewed the adult 
Sunday School lessons at Lexington, First, on two occasions. I showed slides from Togo 
at Center Hill, Lexington, First, Cedar Lodge, Lakeview, Community, and New Friendship. 

I spoke on stewardship at Southgate; spoke at an associational GA Camp at Welcome, 
First; and Ladies Aid Society at Thomasville, First. 

I participated in the following special events: 75th Anniversary of church and "roast" 
of Allen Welborn at Welcome, First; "Open House" for Lamar Moore at Center Hill; IMC 
banquet at YMCA; Gideon banquet at YMCA; "Bib & Tucker" banquet at Lexington, First; 
deacon ordination service at Liberty; reception at Mills Home for Max Evington; Acteens 
Recognition Service at Liberty; North Lexington Deacons and Wives Christmas Party; 
"This Is Your Life" program at Oakview in High Point for Ken Miller; Baptist Men's Day at 
Churchland; Clergy Appreciation Day at Lexington YMCA; 25th Anniversary Celebration 
for Hoke Coon; 150th Anniversary Celebration at Churchland; "Pastor Appreciation" ban- 
quet at Thomasville, First; 200th Anniversary for Lick Creek; and homecomings at Jersey, 
Reeds, Center Hill, and Coggins Memorial. ! assisted in three funerals. 

I was involved in a regional evangelism conference at Caraway; January Bible Study 
training at Wake Forest; Christian Action League at Caraway; ASSIST training at Ard- 
more Baptist in Winston-Salem; Baptist Foundation Meeting at Caraway; World Missions 
Conference in Cabarrus Association; and North Carolina Ministers' Wives and Togo re- 
union at Caraway. I also attended the Baptist State Convention in Greensboro; funeral 
service in Shelby for Dr. Forest Feezor; Statewide Evangelism Conference in Greensboro; 
Statewide Vacation Bible School Clinic; DOM/Convention staff at Caraway; Key Leader- 
ship Conference at Ridgecrest; Southern Baptist Convention in St. Louis, Missouri; and 
DOM Summer Conference at Wingate. 

I have given assistance to the Pastor Search Committee at Mills Home, Sunday School 
ASSISTeam, Evangelism Committee, Program Committee, Nominating Committee, 
Finance Committee, and DCCC Committee. 

We had a number of major events in the association: Senior Adult Rally; "Singing 
Churchmen" and "Singing Churchwomen"; Associational Youth Night; Gardner-Webb 
College Ministerial Education Day; "Pastor Appreciation" Day; Apostoloi Team for ten 
weeks; Associational Sunday School Training School, and Evangelism Rally. 

We need to give attention now to the continued support for Osbert and Margaret 
James at Wingate College and the Partnership Mission with the nation of Brazil.

Evangelism Report 1986-87 



Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: 

I am excited about the opportunity of serving as Evangelism Director for Liberty Bap- 
tist Association this year. It has been a good year In many ways, and yet there Is still 
room for improvement. Being evangelistic Is more than just giving a sociable nod to the 
fact that people need to know Jesus, just as being Christian Is more than knowing there 
Is a Christ. Davidson County Baptists have always been people who believe the Bible, yet 
does that mean we simply agree with its principles or that Its teachings change our lives 
and dictate our priorities. 

God's word tells us that men without Christ are eternally bound for hell and the only 
remedy is for them to trust their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. You and I have the oppor- 
tunity of sharing that good news of Christ to a growing population here In Davidson 
County, on our own doorstep. Our records show that In this past church year, the forty- 
three churches In our association baptized 283 persons, which Is commendable. 
However, in 1986 our churches lost 459 members. It Is not hard to see that we are simply 
not doing the job. Five years ago, in 1982, our churches baptized 386 persons. Simple 
math shows us that this was 103 more than we were able to reach in 1987. 

Business as usual will not get the job done of winning the lost to the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Today there are more lost people In Davidson County than at any other time In history, 
and we seem to be doing less about winning them to our Lord. The bottom line Is this: we 
have before us a grand opportunity to share the good news of Christ and to see It change 
the lives of others. The writer of Proverbs puts it this way, "The fruit of the righteous is 
the tree of life, and HE THAT WINNETH SOULS IS WISE." 

Joyfully HIS, 
Allen Welborn 

Student Ministry Report 

This year Liberty Baptist Association's outreach to students was set on a broader 
foundation through the appointment of a Student Ministry Committee. This six person 
committee consisted of the on-campus Volunteer Director of our Baptist Student Union 
(known as Alpha Omega), the faculty advisor of the group, and four members from our 
churches with a concern for students. 

The committee explored new possibilities for the on-campus ministry and sponsored 
an "On to College" day for college freshmen from our churches In late July. The commit- 
tee is also committed to providing help for workers with college age and other single 
young adults In our churches. A network of support was established with a mailing list of 
workers being compiled, several books and magazines collected to be placed In our 
Associational Library, and a video series purchased for lending purposes. Upon the com- 
mittee's suggestion we will have this year a person on the Sunday School ASSISTeam to 
work with Single Young Adults teachers at our annual training event. 

Our group on campus again provided a weekly forum for Christian students to gather 
for fellowship, support, and exposure to issues of faith and spiritual disciplines. Along 
with regular meetings the group saw many new students join with them In their annual 
Christmas party for needy children. They also sponsored Gary Rand, a Christian musi- 
cian, in concert on campus with about 200 students attending. Rather than taking a mis- 
sion trip this year, the funding set aside for that purpose was used In conjunction with 
Davidson County Domestic Violence Services for a project to aid their work with troubled 
families. The students also raised money for student summer missions and led In enter- 
tainment and challenge at our Associational Acteen Sleepover. 



-37- 



Our most far reaching ministry this year was probably the giving of ourselves as four of 
our students gave their summer to do summer mission work. Within our own state one 
student worked in resort ministries, two worked in local churches as summer youth 
ministers and one served at the Baptist Children's Home in Kinston. 

Student Ministry is an investment in our future. In recent years statistics show the im- 
portance of student ministry is underscored, since more than 50 percent of the pool of 
Southern Baptist leadership has background in student ministry during their educational 
experience. And one out of ten students in Baptist Student Ministries today is directly in- 
volved in missions. Out of the 58 community colleges in North Carolina, we are one of ten 
where Baptists sponsor an on-campus fellowship for Christian students. 

Thank you for standing firm in your commitment to challenge young adults to the 
abundant life found in Jesus Christ. Pray with us that those of us entrusted with this 
ministry will be found faithful. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gaylin Huff

Jesus Christ; 

AND WHEREAS the 43 churches that comprise this association have exemplified a

the Liberty Baptist Association, assembled in the First Baptist Church, Welcome on 
September 30, 1987, do hereby:

4. Express our warmest gratitude to our Director of Missions, Leonard Rollins, for his 
untiring devotion to the cause of Christ, as attested by his return to Togo this year to

past year to our churches, which saw him enter into his 25th year of service as our 
Director of Missions. 

5. Express appreciation to all who served on associational committees, who submit- 
ted reports for these sessions, and others who have participated in the work of the 
Liberty Baptist Association during this past year. 

6. Express encouragement to the messengers of these sessions and the churches

Churchland Baptist Church 

Information by Mrs. Vernelle Snider Greene 

It is not known when preaching began in the Churchland Community. According to 
Paschal's History of North Carolina Baptists, Rev. John Gano preached at Boone's Ford, 
March 20, 1774. This was four miles from the present location. Fifteen people were con- 
verted and baptized on that day, one of whom was Richard Barnes who has a number of 
descendants in places of leadership in Churchland Baptist Church today. 

The records show that in 1803 Benjamin Abbott, in consideration of five pounds 
($25.00), made a deed of conveyance to a board of trustees for a two-acre tract of land on 
which to build a meeting house. The trustees represented four denominations: Lutheran, 
Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist. They were known by the name of "Revival Con- 
gregation". 

On May 17, 1837, a Baptist church was organized with eleven charter members and 
was called the Pine Meeting House Baptist Church. However, the Baptists continued to 
worship in the Revival Congregation's building. In 1875, the Baptists erected a house of 
worship on a tract of land donated by John Barnes and Henry Clement. The name of the 
church was changed to Piney Baptist Church. 

By this time the members began to realize the value of Sunday School and mission 
work and in a short time a full-time Sunday School was maintained and the church was 
supporting all mission causes of the denomination. 

The church also felt the need for Christian education. In 1903, its thirteenth pastor. 
Rev. J.M. Bennett, called a community meeting to discuss possibilities and as a result of 
this meeting, Churchland High School was organized. Under the leadership of Mr. S.G. 
Hasty, the first principal, it became a large boarding school, partly maintained by the 
state. Many young people from the community and from adjoining counties were pro- 
vided a Christian education in many professions, a large number of whom went out to 
preach the Gospel. 

In 1918, under the leadership of the pastor, Rev. J.T. Gillespie, the church studied Tlie 
Sunday School Manual, the Sunday School was graded, and there was need for addi- 
tional space and equipment. After prayerful consideration, the church voted to erect a 
new building consisting of an auditorium and eight classrooms. The land was donated by 
Mrs. Mary E. Leonard. The name of the church was then changed to Churchland Baptist 
Church. Soon thereafter, a Baptist Young Peoples Union (B.Y.P.U.) was organized. It has 
continued to be active through the years under the name of Baptist Training Union and 
now Church Training which includes all ages. About this same time, the Woman's Mis- 
sionary Society, with all auxiliaries, was organized. Now functioning as Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union, it is a very strong arm of the church. 

In 1946, a seven-room parsonage was built and a full-time pastor was called. In 1954, 
an educational building was completed, consisting of more than thirty classrooms, a 
pastor's study and many other facilities which provide space for a completely depart- 
mentalized Sunday School. 

On Easter Sunday, April 21, 1957, a constitution and bylaws was adopted by the 
church. On the same date, ground breaking services were held for a new sanctuary. The 
people donated many hours of labor, as well as money, and the building was completed 
by Homecoming Day, October 20th. 

On October 2, 1960, the church voted to endorse and support a Brotherhood organiza- 
tion. These men have been very active in the life of the church. 

In 1963, the parsonage was remodeled and an additional wing was added, making it a 
comfortable nine-room house. 

The first church directory was prepared in 1968 and another was issued in 1976. 

The highlight for the church in 1974 was receiving the one millionth copy of the New 
Baptist Hymnal. A special ceremony was conducted by Dr. William Reynolds from the 



-44- 



Sunday School Board's Music Department and Mr. Charles Gatewood from the State 
Convention's Music Department. The hymnals were presented to the church by the Don 
Earnhardt family in memory of their son, Mike. 

In the fall of 1976, this church joined with other churches in the county to participate in 
the Davidson County Crusade for Christ. Many decisions were made for Christ in this 
meeting which was held at the Davidson County Fairgrounds. 

In 1978, Tom Carr was employed as the first Summer Youth Worker for the church. 
Also, in 1978, air conditioning was installed in the parsonage and Mr. and Mrs. Taylor 
Nance, in memory of his sister, Annie, donated air conditioning units for the second and 
third floors of the educational building. 

Sunday, October 18, 1981, was a special day at Churchland. A ground breaking cere- 
mony was held to begin the new fellowship hall. The oldest member present, Mrs. Clara 
Lomax, and the youngest member, Carrie Snider, assisted Dr. Paul Millwood in this serv- 
ice. The building was dedicated on Homecoming Day, September 19, 1982, in a very im- 
pressive service led by the pastor. Dr. Millwood. Hanging above the huge fireplace in the 
building is a wooden cross donated by Mrs. Lois Walton as a memorial to her husband, 
Rev. J.O. Walton, a former pastor of the church. 

The highlight of 1987 for Churchland Baptist Church was the 150th Anniversary cele- 
bration held on May 16 and 17. The fellowship hall was filled with artifacts of yesteryear 
as well as pictures of former pastors. Rug weaving was demonstrated by Mr. Doug 
Parnell and his 100-year-old mother, known as "Miss Sally". The making of cornmeal was 
demonstrated by Mr. Hugh Shepherd, as well as splitting pine to start fires, as was done 
many years ago. There were guided tours of the cemetery and a video tour for those 
unable to go on the walking tour. There were horse-drawn wagons, buggy and surrey 
rides for everyone. Children enjoyed playing old-fashioned games during the afternoon. 
Charter member descendants, former pastors and their families, former residents of 
Churchland from far and near were present and enjoyed the barbecue supper served to 
those present on Saturday evening. The ladies and young girls in their long dresses and 
bonnets, and the men and boys in their attire of long ago was indeed an impressive sight. 

A church history has been updated by Mr. Hugh E. Greene, a lifelong member of the 
church. The book, Reflection, is now ready for distribution at a price of $12.00 per copy. 

Mrs. Vernelle Snider Greene, church historian, says, "As we begin the second half of 
the second century as an established church, our primary objective remains the same to- 
day as it was when those eleven God-fearing men and women organized our church in 
1837, and that is: To follow the Great Commission given by our Lord in Matthew 
28:19-20." 

Lakeview Baptist Church 

Information by Marian Gordon, Church Clerk 

In the early forties, a group of dedicated Christians had a desire in their hearts for a 
church in what is now the Lakeview Community. They first met in a service station on Old 
Highway 29 and later moved into a garage across from Carl Hanes Grocery. The church 
was constituted in 1944. Under the leadership of Rev. Zeb Thompson, and with a great 
desire for a church building, land was purchased near the garage, only to learn the land 
was restricted and a church building could not be erected there. 

Mr. Holland Michael, who was not a church member, felt a need to help. He purchased 
nine acres of land from Zeb Grubb on what is now Lakeview Church Road. The members 
could not afford to pay for that much land at this time so Mr. Michael sold them one and 
three-fourths acres for $500.00 on which to build their church. Lumber cut from the land 
was used for the framework in the church building. 

Along with the help of Mr. Michael and dedicated church members, they worked very 
hard to erect the building themselves. 



-45- 



In 1947, Rev. Thompson resigned and Rev. J.O. Dunn became pastor. The first 
homecoming was held in the new church on June 6, 1948. At this time the church was 
debt free. 

In the early fifties, land was purchased across the road from the church where the par- 
sonage was built in 1960 at a cost of approximately $10,000.00. 

In 1953, the church ceiling was raised and four new Sunday School classrooms were 
added. 

Rev. Dunn resigned July 14, 1957, after which Rev. Wesley Taylor served as interim 
pastor. Rev. Paul Gales from Albemarle was called December 11, 1957, and served until 
January 3, 1960. Rev. Hubert Nelson was called April 3, 1960. He resigned May 31, 1961. 
He was followed by Rev. Thomas Tuggell who served from July 1961 until September 
1962. On November 11, 1962, Rev. M.T. Morton was called and served until his resignation 
in April 1966. 

In May 1966, Rev. Robert Williams was called as pastor. During his pastorate, three 
new classrooms were added; also, in April 1973, the church paid the indebtedness on the 
parsonage; in December 1973, aluminum siding was installed on the church building; in 
August 1979, new pews were placed in the sanctuary; and in February 1982, an air condi- 
tioning system was installed in the sanctuary. 

Because of poor health. Rev. Williams resigned July 25, 1982, after serving as pastor 
for sixteen years. The church was truly grateful for his service during that time. 

On August 1, 1982, Rev. Edward M. Pigg, from Rodgers Park Baptist Church in Kan- 
napolis. North Carolina, became interim pastor and on October 10th he was called to 
become the pastor. On November 7th, Rev. Pigg was ordained at Rodgers Park Baptist 
Church and Rev. Leonard Rollins gave the charge to Lakeview Baptist Church. Under the 
leadership of Rev. Pigg, a complete renovation of the sanctuary was begun. A new bap- 
tistry was installed, new carpet was laid and the choir section was rebuilt. A public ad- 
dress system was also installed in the sanctuary. 

On November 18, 1984, the church voted for Rev. Pigg to become full-time pastor. Prior 
to this time he held a full-time job while also serving as pastor of the church. The parson- 
age was remodeled and in February 1985, Rev. Pigg and his family moved to the church 
field. 

After much thought and prayer, an acre of land adjacent to the church building was 
purchased in July 1985. In August, construction of a fellowship building was begun and it 
was completed by April 1986. A dedication sen/ice was held on July 18, 1986. 

In the words of Marian Gordon, Church Clerk, she expresses the feeling of the church 
family as follows: "The Lord has truly blessed Lakeview Baptist Church, and under the 
leadership of Rev. Edward Pigg we have grown in love, unity, forgiveness and under- 
standing toward one another. Through God's help the church has continued to grow and 
prosper."

First Baptist Church of Welcome 

Written by Linda Nifong, Church Administrative Secretary 

First Baptist Church of Welcome owes its early beginnings to the efforts of Mrs. Lizzie 
Fritts Everhart. 

Mrs. Everhart gathered a group of neighbors and began worship services in the old 
Thomas School located between Midway and Welcome. The people met there for approx- 
imately a year before a decision was made to build in Welcome. The worship services 
were then moved from Thomas School to the old Welcome School. In October 1911, 
Welcome Baptist Church was constituted with twelve charter members. Those charter 
members are Mr. and Mrs. E.J. Zimmerman, Mr. and Mrs. K.Z. Hill, Mr. and Mrs. John F. 
Crotts, Mr. and Mrs. C.S. Haynes, Guilford Beeker, G.C. Hinkle, Vaughn Brinkley, and 
Emory Zimmerman. The church called Rev. O.A. Keller to serve as the first pastor. 

In January 1912, Mr. and Mrs. E.J. Zimmerman donated land to build a church, which 
was completed that same year. The new church's first deacons were C.S. Haynes, E.J. 
Zimmerman, and John Crotts. 

The church organized its Sunday School Department August 1912 with E.J. Zimmer- 
man serving as superintendent. 

In April 1917, Rev. W.L Barrs was called to serve as pastor. Mr. Barrs served until 1920. 
Rev. J.C. Gillespie served as pastor 1920-21. Rev. Barrs was called again in 1921 and 
served the church as pastor until 1927. 

Woman's Missionary Society was organized in September 1925 by Mrs. J.E. Childress, 
who served as first president. 

In 1932 there was need for further expansion. Construction began for the addition of 
ten classrooms, and the church sanctuary was bricked. Dedication services were held in 
November 1941. 

The church was remodeled in 1951, and a baptistry was installed. There were eleven 
people baptized in the first baptismal service. 

The church began another building program in 1957, this time completing a three-story 
educational building that same year. 

Pastors serving Welcome Baptist Church and the community were E.C. Roach, C.C. 
Edinger, and E.T. Sims. Rev. Oscar Hartman was called in March 1944 and served as part- 
time pastor, alternating Sunday morning and Sunday night services between Welcome 
and Stanleyville Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. In 1962 Rev. Hartman resigned and 
the church felt the need to call a full-time pastor. Rev. Gerald Hewitt was called in August 
1962, and he and his family moved into the newly completed parsonage on Hinkle Lane 
Road. Rev. Hewitt served Welcome Church until 1965. Following Mr. Hewitt's leadership 
were Don Sides, Dean Harrold, and Ray Yarbrough, Jr. 

By the early seventies, the church had outgrown its facilities and careful considera- 
tion indicated a need to relocate. On April 4, 1971, the church voted to buy 9.6 acres of 
land from the E.J. Zimmerman estate. The church voted to begin a building program in 
May 1975, and a groundbreaking ceremony was held late that month. The construction 
was begun in early June by S.E. Trogdon and Sons. The first services were held in the 
new facility on Homecoming Sunday, August 8, 1976. A formal dedication service was 
held on March 6, 1977, with Dr. Cecil Ray, General Secretary-Treasurer of the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina, delivering the dedication sermon. 

The name was changed from Welcome Baptist to First Baptist Church of Welcome in 
April 1971. 

In October 1981 the church called L. Allen Welborn of Kokomo, Indiana, to serve as 
pastor. A native of Trinity, North Carolina, Allen is a graduate of Gardner-Webb College 
and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Sandi, have five 
children. 

The church has experienced much growth during the past several years. 



-47- 



In 1982 the church received 76 new members. George Williamson was called to serve 
as part-time associate pastor. Christa Warise was called to serve as summer youth work 
and Linda Nifong was employed as a part-time secretary. 

In 1983 the church received 80 new members, of which 36 were baptized. 

Sensing a need for a Mother's Morning Out Program in the community, a program was 
organized in February 1983. Gloria Flowers served as director until the termination of the 
program in May 1987. 

In February 1984 John O. Yates was called as full-time Director of Youth, Music and 
Education Ministries. John, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, and his wife, Elaine, have one 
daughter. 

In 1985 the church had 68 professions of faith, 56 baptisms and 29 additions by letter/ 
statement. The church employed Angela Pless as a part-time youth and children's worker 
and Caria White as a part-time secretary. 

In 1986 the church had 65 professions of faith, 56 baptisms and 22 additions by letter/ 
statement. 

The varied ministries of the church reflect a strong desire to reach out to others in 
Jesus' name. 

In 1984 the church became involved in Continuing Witness Training (C.W.T.), which is 
an intensive thirteen-week course, giving those who participate an opportunity to grow in 
knowing how to share our faith and lead people to know Jesus as Lord and Savior. 
Regular weekly visitation is also an important outreach tool. 

The Sunday School emphasizes Bible study and times of fellowship with others. 

Music is a very important part of the church life at First Baptist. The adult and 
children's choirs, along with soloists, ensembles, and instrumentalists, bring glory to the 
Lord through music. 

The active Youth Ministry challenges our young people to grow in their faith and reach 
out to others. Youth meet weekly for Bible study and various activities. 

Special emphasis is also placed on children's ministry. In addition to Sunday School 
and missions groups, children ages 5-8 attend Children's Church, which meets Sunday 
morning during 11:00 worship. This ministry is led by Mary Ann Simpson and Lisa Flynn. 

In June 1987 Charles White, Jr., was called to serve as Youth Director. 

In July 1987 First Baptist Church made the final payment on the church facility. A 
special note-burning ceremony was held in September. 

Welcome Christian Day Care, a ministry of FBC, began in August 1987. It is the desire 
of the church and Day Care Director, Gloria Flowers, to reach out and minister to and lov- 
ingly care for the needs of children and parents in Welcome and surrounding com- 
munities. 

Current membership at First Baptist is approximately 725. In 1987 the church had 41 
professions of faith, 31 baptisms, and 17 additions by letter/statement. 

First Baptist Church is a caring, loving church. It is the church's desire to reach out, to 
witness and win the lost of the community to Jesus Christ and to help Christians grow in 
their relationship with the Lord. The spirit of love and caring within our church family 
allows us to show others that Jesus does make a difference!

Oakhurst Baptist Church 

Information by Caroline H. Presnell 

It was on Thursday, August 14, 1969, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Helms rented an old church 
building for two weeks for the sum of twenty dollars. On that day friends and family 
began work to clean the lot, cutting down weeds and growth which had completely over- 
taken the building. After three days of hard work the building and grounds were ready for 
use. On Sunday, August 17, the first service was held with Harold Helms presiding and 
twenty-seven persons were in attendance. 

On December 21, 1969, the mission elected its first deacons who were Wade Martin, 
Edward Painter and James Franklin. January 11, 1970, Treasurer E.M. Teddar and Sunday 
School Superintendent Edward Painter were elected. On February 1, the first budget was 
adopted and trustees E.M. Teddar, Wade Martin and James Franklin were elected. 

On November 15, 1970, the mission was organized into a church and was named for 
the community in which it is located, Oakhurst Baptist Church. On this date there were 
156 persons present; sixty-one of these were charter members, twelve were visiting 
pastors and eighty-three other visitors. 

January 21, 1971, Harold Helms was ordained Into the ministry and was called as 
pastor of the church. 

September 10, 1972, the members voted to purchase the building and land. Work 
began immediately toward remodeling the building, which included a basement floor, ad- 
dition of four rooms and brick veneering the outside walls. All labor was volunteered by 
church members and people from the community. 

September 26, 1972, the church was accepted into the Liberty Baptist Association and 
has continued in fellowship since that time. 

Through the years many special things have happened to the church. In 1975, a steeple 
was erected and spotlights were placed around it for night viewing. In 1976, the building 
was repaneled and painted, carpet was installed, the pulpit area was raised and a choir 
section was added. A piano was donated by Mrs. Thurman Fritts. In 1986, a new lighting 
system was installed, celling fans were added and ventilation in the roof was replaced. 

Homecoming Day, August 14, 1986, was a very special day in the life of the church. On 
this day the church became completely debt free and during the special sen/ice the note 
on the church indebtedness was burned. 

During the past eighteen years, the church has had only one pastor, Rev. Harold L 
Helms and two assistant pastors, Rev. Eddie Matthews and Rev. Willie Freedle. 

The following is a quotation by Caroline H. Presnell: "In concluding the history of our 
church, looking back through the years, we have suffered many hardships. But by the 
leadership of the Spirit of God, we have overcome and we stand victorious looking and 
pressing forward to the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus." 



The histories of the four host churches will be printed in the minutes of Liberty Baptist 
Association and will also be sent to the Baptist Historical Collection to become a part of 
the permanent records there. Mr. John Woodard, Director of the Historical Collection, 
continues to urge all churches to place their records on microfilm, which Is a free service

Standing Resolutions 

Ordination of New Ministers 

It is strongly recommended as the position of this Association: 

1. That, when a church desires to put forth a candidate for examination and ap- 
proval for ordination to the full work of the Gospel Ministry, an Examining Council 
composed of a committee of five elected by the Association in annual meeting, plus 
the pastors and one layman from each cooperating church in the fellowship of the 
Liberty Baptist Association, be summoned by written invitation of at least one week 
in advance from the church nominating the candidate. 

2. That the examination of the candidate be conducted by the Examining Council 
and that a report of its findings be given to the nominating church. If the report is fav- 
orable the nominating church will set the date of ordination and notify the member 
churches. 

3. That we ordain only those who have received a definite call to become a pastor, 
an associate pastor, or an educational director of a Baptist church on regular stand- 
ing in the Association or those who have felt a call to the mission field, the chaplain- 
cy of our armed forces or the chaplaincy of a public institution whose church shall 
have requested in writing his ordination before the call of the ordaining council shall 
be approved. 

Policies for ttie Establisfiment of l\^issions 

1. Definite sponsorship by an established church. 

2. Sponsoring church to work in cooperation with Associational Missions Commit- 
tee. 

3. Sponsoring church to retain control of Mission until such time as the church 
and the Associational Missions Committee agree that the Mission is self-sufficient. 

4. Sponsoring church to call Mission pastor and select all workers in the Mission. 

5. Sponsoring church to encourage Mission from the beginning to give a definite 
percentage of the offering plate dollar through the Cooperative Program and Associ- 
ational Missions. 

6. Sponsoring church should insist upon a full and well-defined program of South- 
ern Baptist Work in the Mission, using the Southern Baptist literature. 

7. Sponsoring church to work with the Associational Missions Committee in prop- 
erly locating the Mission. 

8. Sponsoring church to work with the Mission in planning of new buildings, using 
the services of the Church Planning Department of the Baptist State Convention.

Organization and Admission of New Cfiurches 

Recognizing the right of the Association to determine its own membership and be- 
ing aware of the importance of the manner in which the churches are organized, we 
recommend that any group of individuals desiring to organize themselves into a new 
church with the purpose of seeking recognition of and fellowship and cooperation 
with the Association be requested to meet the following standards: 

1. Notice shall be given to the Moderator of the desire to organize a church before 
any such organization takes place. The Moderator will then ask the Missions Com- 
mittee to study and pass upon the need for and the practicability of such an organi- 
zation. 

2. That the location of said church shall be sufficiently removed so as not to in- 
terfere with the work or encroach upon the territory of the churches already affiliated 
with the Association. This will be determined by the Missions Committee. 

3. Upon being approved by the Missions Committee the group will then request 
this committee to examine the church covenant, articles of faith, and constitution (if 
a constitution has been adopted) of the proposed church. Should the committee ap- 
prove the covenant, articles of faith, and constitution, the group will proceed at a 
later date to be constituted into a Baptist church of the same faith and order.

tist State Convention in 1948, and preached in 40 youth revivals during college days. 
While a student for two years at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, he was 
pastor in Dozier, Alabama, and married Mary Frances (Polly) White. He returned to 
Lexington, North Carolina, on August 3, 1952, to become the pastor of Coggins

resigned to accept the call to become the Director of Missions for Liberty Baptist 
Association. He began this work on March 11, 1963. 

Polly is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, and a graduate of Birmingham-Southern 
College and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. She taught school for two 
years before enrolling in the seminary, where she met and married Leonard Rollins. 
They have three daughters, Jane, Lou, Ann, and two grandsons, Matthew and 
Jonathan. Polly has served alongside her husband in ministries in the association, 
has worked as part-time secretary in the associational office, and has been active on 
the state level in the Ministers' Wives Organization, Church Secretaries Organiza- 
tion, and the Executive Board of the North Carolina Woman's Missionary Union.

Proceedings 

One Hundred Fifty-sixth Annual Session 
Liberty Baptist Association 

TUESDAY AFTERNOON - SEPTEMBER 27 
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 
Thomasville, North Carolina 

"Partners on Mission - 156 Years of Ministry", was the theme for the 156th annual ses- 
sion of the Liberty Baptist Association. 

Moderator Roy Cantrell called the opening session to order. Al Martin was introduced 
and led in the singing of "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing", and "Praise Him! Praise 
Him!". He was accompanied by Crystal Capps and Adam Ward. 

The 156th session was constituted and the program was accepted as order of 
business. Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Mark Blair nominated Mrs. Judy 
Wood as Clerk. The nomination was seconded and carried. 

Rev. Joel Jenkins led us in a time of devotion as he read from John 21: 15ff. 

Rev. Leonard Rollins introduced and recognized the new pastors and staff members of 
our churches. Rev. Charles Penly, Jr., Mills Home; Rev. B.V. Broadway has returnd to 
Floyd Church; Rev. Reggie Parker, Stoner's Grove; and Tom Wray, Youth Minister at FBC, 
Welcome. 

Reports were given from: Barbara Foster, Missions Committee; Charles Penninger, 
Treasurer; Brooks Hunt, Finance Committee; Judy Wood, Executive Committee; Migrant 
Missions, Brenda Emmons; and Dear! Bunce, Sunday School. (A copy of these reports 
follows.) 

Rev. Mike Vipperman extended a welcome to FBC, Thomasville. 

In miscellaneous business it was announced that an offering would be taken during 
the evening session for Osbert & Margaret James. Missionaries from Grenada have ad- 
vised that if possible the James' should return home during the Christmas holidays. It is 
important that they keep in contact with pastors and people in their homeland. 

Leonard made a request for churches to contact the Preacher and Place Committee if 
they would be interested in entertaining the Association between 1991 and 2000. 

The afternoon worship began with Al Martin singing "Just As I Am" and "Amazing 
Grace". Rev. Paul Millwood read from I Corinthians 3:9 and Phillipians 1: 1-7. Rev. Warren 
Kerr brought the message on "Partners on Mission". 

After the meal the evening session began with the singing of "To God Be the Glory" 
and "Victory In Jesus". The Offering ($422.39) was received for Osbert & Margaret James. 

Emphasis on missions was brought to us first hand by members of the summer mis- 
sion teams. Janet Sharpe talked of witnessing, sharing, helping, loving the people of An- 
tigua; of how when she gave one man a Bible on the beach he kissed it. Mickey Sharpe 
told of being a very fortunate person to go on a trip like the one in Nevis of which he was 
a part; of how he went to teach but was taught in return. Brian Hemphill expressed 
spiritual fulfillment and that the trip to St. Kitts furthered his Christian life. 

Gaylin Huff gave a presentation on the Campus Ministry at Davidson Community Col- 
lege. 

Evelyn Kepley introduced Virginia Moorefleld who gave a testimony of her service as a 
Senior Adult and what the Senior Adult Ministry means to her. 

Leonard Rollins introduced those who will be going to Brazil: Leonard Rollins, Lamar 
Moore, Morris Hollifield, Roy Cantrell, Edward Pigg, Mike Vipperman, Don Williard, Mat- 
thew Dunn and John Young. 

Historian Vernelle Greene gave the history of FBC, Thomasville. 

The choir of FBC, Thomasville provided the evening music directed by Bill Highbaugh. 

John Pace was recognized and at this point we followed the special program which 
follows.

March 11, 1963 - September 27, 1988 



Tonight we pause, all too briefly, to leave a mark on the road of history that is Liberty 
Baptist Association. We carve into the fiber of our history the names of Leonard and Pol- 
ly Rollins because of their 25 years of faithful and devoted service to the cause of Christ 
and to the Liberty Baptist Association of churches. During these years they have loved 
us, even with our flaws. They have served us and they have taught us. They have led us 
when we were confused, supported us in times of difficulty, comforted us in times of sor- 
row, and counselled us with Solomon-like wisdom when we were distraught. They have 
provided times of fellowship and challenge when we were tired and had lost our zeal, and 
they have led us by example to seek, to know and to follow the sweet will of our Heavenly 
Father. 

So tonight we pause to say thank you, not only for what you have done for us, but for 
what you ARE to us. Please know that we enjoy loving you and enjoy being loved by you. 
Our lives have been much more enjoyable and challenging and productive because we 
have been privileged to walk alongside of you for these 25 years.

Recognition of Leonard and Polly Rollins 
For 25 Years of Ministry - September 27, 1988 

The original intent of our committee was to honor Leonard for 25 years of service as 
Director of Missions. In discussion which followed, it soon became apparent we were 
looking at honoring both Leonard and Polly. As any pastor knows, the wife and helpmeet 
determines the effectiveness of the role in which the minister serves. She undergrids the 
influence of his ministry with her commitment to the family and her encouragement for 
her husband. When Leonard began serving as our missionary March 11, 1963, Polly had 
her hands full with rearing their daughters and providing for her family. Later, she did 
part-time work in the office. In more recent years, she has served as office secretary and 
has worked 20 hours per week. Because of her commitment to the work, faithfulness to 
the ministry, and efficient service as our secretary, it has become appropriate to use both 
names in reference to our Director of Missions. For this reason, Leonard's and Polly's 
names are both used as we celebrate 25 years of ministry with the Liberty Baptist 
Association. 

There are many ways of expressing appreciation. We are somewhat limited, however, 
when it comes to methods for recording such expressions. Because of this, the commit- 
tee felt it would be desirable to provide some momento of this celebration which could be 
looked upon at later times as a vivid reminder that the Liberty Baptist Association has 
said " thank you" to Leonard and Polly in appropriate fashion. 

To help accomplish this, we have prepared a plaque which we want to present at this 
time. It is our hope that these words will simply and appropriately convey something of 
our gratitude, admiration, and appreciation for your friendship and ministry.

Presentation of the Associational House 
To Mr. and Mrs. Rollins - September 27, 1988 

Last year on September 29 during the evening service at Churchland Baptist Church, 
the Liberty Association in annual session adopted the report of the 25th Anniversary 
Celebration Committee. 

Section III of that report recommended that at the annual meeting on September 27, 
1988, the Liberty Baptist Association sell to Rev. and Mrs. Leonard Rollins the house and 
lot where they now live on Glenwood Drive in Lexington. It was determined that the price 
would be $20,000.00, which was the amount the association paid for the house when it 
was purchased in 1959. 

It was further recommended that the association finance the sale at no interest, and 
that the Finance Committee include in the proposed budget a housing allowance of 
$5,000.00 each year for the next four years, which would in turn be used for repayment to 



■24- 



the association. By the time for normal retirement for IVIr. Rollins on September 1, 1992, 
the house can be paid for and the property will be debt free. 

The action taken by the Association authorized the celebration committee to enlist the 
trustees and legal counsel to draw up the necessary documents and prepare papers so 
the appropriate transfer of property could be made at the annual meeting on September 
27, 1988. 

These matters have now been completed and we come this evening to effect the 
desired transfer. 

Perhaps is should be noted that the committee has tried to accomplish the full intent 
of the association. 

The deed has been made in both names as follows: Beamer H. Barnes, Hugh H. 
Shepherd and James K. Ward, trustees of Liberty Baptist Association, To Leonard L. 
Rollins and wife, Mary Frances Rollins, and is dated 31 August 1988. Should anything 
happen to Mr. Rollins, the transaction is still to be carried out as stated in the agreement. 
This is done through a Warrenty Deed, secured by a Deed of Trust, and the provision of 
appropriate insurance. 

For 25 years the Associational House on Glenwood Drive has been home to Leonard 
and Polly. We have thought of it as a place where the family was primary, and home life 
was shared in its finest fashion. We have seen it as a place where children grew up, then 
brought grandchildren to visit and share. It has been a haven of rest for the family, a 
gathering place for the community, and a source of encouragement for church families 
from the Association. It is our prayer that with the love surrounding this deed, the in- 
creasing gratitude which you engender in our lives, and the sense of accomplishment 
which grows in our midst, today will be remembered as a significant time for all of us. 
May this house continue to be a place for community gatherings, a place for children and 
their families to return home, and a place where grandchildren can run and play. But 
above all, may it always be a place where love abides, where faith increases, and where 
Christian joy reigns supreme. And may it be a place where Leonard and Polly can grow 
older and older and older. . .together, until our Father calls them to that dwelling not 
made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 

And now, as Vice-Moderator, a member of the 25th Anniversary Celebration Commit- 
tee, and on behalf of the Liberty Baptist Association, it is my privilege to present to 
Leonard and Polly a Deed for the house where they now live. 

May God bless you and give you many happy years of ministry, and service, and love. 

Morris S. Hollifield, Pastor 
Jersey Baptist Church

On Making One's Mark 

I doubt that anyone here has ever heard of Curtis Drug Store .... For me, now, it is one 
of those "memories (as the song says) in the corner of my mind." 

Curtis Drug Store sat for years-all my "growing up years" -on the square (such as it is) 
in Bessemer City, a small textile town down in Gaston County which I call home. It was 
one of the main "hang outs" for my high school crowd in the early forties. It was there 
that we gathered to talk about ballgames, girls (or boys), and almost everything else from 
the weather to the war. It was there that we sipped Cherry Smash, ate Biltmore ice cream 
and split nickel cinnamon buns three ways with an ample serving for each. And it was 
there, on three wooden booths, that a couple of generations left there mark. Sooner or 
later almost every kid in town carved or scratched his (her) initials somewhere on one of 

-25- 



those booths. And even though it was permissable (even though Doc Curtis didn't care) 
there was a strange satisfaction in making and leaving one's mark. 

Through we didn't know it at the time, that was a youthful response to a deep desire 
within our human nature. That's why many of you did a similiar thing, only worse-like 
leaving your initials or hand print in someone's wet concrete! Remember. . .? 

Mankind, since the beginning of time, sensing something of the fragility and brevity of 
life, has sought some degree of permanence regarding his days--a strong desire to leave 
his mark. So it is that the earliest of our kind (species) left strange stone monuments and 
crude cave etchings-marks that would outlast him and inform future generations that he 
had once been here. 

And that is how I hear the prayer of the Psalmist with which Psalms 90 comes to a 
close. Without the knowledge and hope of eternal life such as we know on this side of 
Easter, he was keenly aware of the fragileness and brevity of human life. He expresses 
that again and again: 

"In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and 

withereth . ..." (v. 6) 
"... we spend our years as a tale that is told . ..." (v. 9) 
". . .it is soon cut off and we fly away. ..." (v. 10) 
Hence it was that he prayed: 

"... Establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands 
establish thou it." (v. 17) 
He was longing for some satisfying sense of permanence. His prayer was that his labors 
would not be utterly lost-that there would be some sign informing future generations 
that he had once been here. 

I believe that is a legitimate longing lodged in the heart of every normal person. He 
(she) would like to leave some mark that will not be erased in some tomorrow. 
But, the question is: "Is there anything that lasts?" 
The answer to that is an unequivocal YES. 

I. 

For one thing, lest we forget, THERE ARE GREAT AND NOBLE CAUSES THAT WILL 
SURVIVE US. . . . 

Believing in, living for and the making contributions to great causes will never be 

lost. 

Recall that familiar event that took place while Jesus was the guest of Simon, the 
Leper, in Bethany. Both Matthew and Mark recorded it for us. A short time before the 
crucifixion, you will recall, Jesus was the dinner guest of Simon. While they were dining, 
there came in this woman with a flask of costly ointment. Without hesitation, she 
demonstrated the "extravagance of love." She broke it open and poured the entire con- 
tent on Jesus. And the disciples, you will remember, expressed indignation at such a 
"wasteful" act. "It might have been sold for three hundred pence, and have been given to 
the poor," one or more of them said. But Jesus, we need to remember, responded quite 
differently. This is what He said: 

Let her alone; why trouble ye her? She hath wrought a good work 
on me. . .She hath done what she could. . . .Verily, I say unto you, 
wheresoever this gospel is preached throughout the whole world, 
this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of 
her. 

Indeed. It has and it will! She left her mark. Her gift of love will never be lost. As long as 
time remains the world will remember, with great benefit, a woman whose name we do 
not even know! 

And this event takes on the quality of a parable. Our gifts of love; the best purpose for 
which we work will never be lost. Oh, we may never gain fame. Only a few might ever 
know. But we can leave our mark by living for the great and godly causes that will survive 
us. 

That story, if it does nothing more, reminds us that it is important, terribly important, 
what we choose to invest our lives, our energies and money in. Some things are soon 
gone. Some things will last forever.

II. 



But, then again, there were are not only causes (of which the kingdom is the greatest) that 

survive us Remember, also and always, that THE INFLUENCES WE LEAVE UPON 

OUR FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN ALSO SURVIVE THE MOMENTS WE SPEND WITH 
THEM. 

As Christians we believe in something more than the "immortality of influence" but let 
us never forget-vve believe in that also! 

I was reminded recently in reading again the autobiography of Harry Emerson Fosdick, 
prince among preachers. In that book, written when he was well into his eighties, I was 
struck by the vivid recollections and the powerful influences of others on his life-most of 
whom had gone on years before. . . . 

He spoke of one of his professors at Colgate of whom he said: "Had it not been 
for him, I suspect that I should never have been a Christian minister." And I realized when 
I read that--what a debt I owe to William Newton Clark. What a mark he left on this world 
because of his influence on Harry Emerson Fosdick. 

He (Fosdick), at one point, told of suffering a nervous breakdown and of his desire, 
later, to return to school but the difficulty he had of financing it. And he came to say: "A 
friend wagered three hundred dollars on my ability sometime to repay him." Can you im- 
agine the lasting, permanent influence that man had on Fosdick and the mark he left on 
the world through him? 

He spoke of his mother of whom he said: "I am writing this over 50 years after she 
died, but neither death nor the passing of time can put an end to that inward fellowship." 

Our influence-good and bad-lives on long after we are gone. 



Some years ago, through the writings of the late LD. Johnson, I learned about a place 
called "Inscription Rock." It is, so I'm told, a large rock formation in New Mexico called El 
Morro that guards a pass opening into Colorado and the Northwest. As early as the 16th 
century the Spaniards were already using the pass. Often as one passed that way he 
would pause long enough to carve or scratch his name or initals on the rock along with 
the date and the phrase "PASO POR AQUI," "passed through here. ..." It became kind 
of a custom and years later a lonely trapper or prospector would do the same. Though he 
may never be heard from again, that man on a given date had passed there and left his 
mark. 

I have been thinking about INSCRIPTION ROCK in connection with this special day. 
Leonard, Polly, it is quite evident that you have carved your names twenty-five 
(yea, 35-40) years deep into the formation called the life and ministry of Liberty Baptist 
Association. Now, of course, your names are not the only ones there. Goodness only 
knows how many names have been cut into this formation since the first "saints and sin- 
ners" started meeting at Jersey. How many others there have been since Moses Lamb 
and Henry Sheets passed through here more than a hundred years ago. 

We are just pausing, briefly, to notice your mark on the Inscription Rock of Liberty 
Association and the Inscription Rock that is the peculiar and most personal possession 
of each of us-to express our deeply felt gratitude that in the providence of God you 
"paso por aqui," (you passed through here). 

Shortly before her death Betty Feezor wrote a book in which she admonished her 
readers: "Live so that when you are gone, it will have mattered that you were here." 

We congratulate you on that achievement. We love you not only for what you have 
done but most of all because of who you are and whose you are. We salute you. May God 
bless. . .

Executive Committee 

October 12, 7:30 P.M. 

As was announced on September 30th, 1987, there was a called meeting of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the Liberty Baptist Association to discuss the recommendation of 
the Evangelism Committee as presented at the annual meeting. 

The meeting began as Moderator, Roy Cantrell requested that we stand, join hands 
and have prayer together. Rev. Cantrell introduced the purpose of the meeting, called for 
unity and constructive discussion. The motion and the substitute motion were both read. 

Rev. Allen Welborn restated the motion purposing an alternate date of June 19-24. 

Following brief discussion it was decided to deal with the motion as it was presented. 
Questions were asked concerning the cost of the proposed crusade, commitment related 
to invitation, the controversy surrounding Dr. Bailey Smith. 

Following the discussion the question was called for. The vote carried 9 in support of 
the motion from the Evangelism Committee and 22 opposing. The motion failed. 

Allen Welborn made a motion to adjourn. Again, standing and joining hands, prayer 
was offered in closing.

25TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE: 

John Pace reported that Evelyn Kepley had worked hard making arrangements, 
schedules, and getting letters of invitations to the churches for the reception on March 
13. He also presented the legal document concerning the transfer of the associational 
house to the Rollins'. A motion to accept the resolution document was made by Morris 
Hollifield and seconded by R.N. Hardin. 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

Brenda Emmons gave a report on the Migrant Ministry. This involves an area of a 25

these migrants when they return in June, food and health care kits. 
WMU: 

Doris Lopp expressed a big thank you for the response of school suplies for DC Foster 
children. Social Services reported that it was the first time they had had enough school 
supplies for all the children. There was also an overwhelming response to providing 
cross-stitch materials for Caroline Jones, missionary to Chile. There was $400 of 
materials and $235 in cash collected for her needs. 
LEONARD'S REPORT: 

George Williamson had asked to be relieved of his duties as program chairman for the 
annual associational meeting. He has taken a pastorate in High Point and is now a 
member at that church. The Nominating Committee recommends that John Pace serve 
as the program committee chairman. This recommendation was accepted. 

Leonard reported that the Brazil trip was "a very responsive trip from the standpoint of 
the Brazilians." There are two SB churches with a total membership of 210 in a town of 
350,000. The goal is to have 1,000 churches in one state within the next 5 years. Priorities 
at this time are not money but volunteers. They would like to have 18 people from Liberty 
Association in September 1988 for house to house visitation and revivals. Volunteers 
would work with an interpreter and need to be prepared to lead in devotionals, preach 
and share their faith. 

Lamar Moore made a motion, seconded by John Pace, that Leonard attend a leader- 
ship conference at Caraway February 5 for this project in September. Motion carried. 

Forty-two churches participated in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Liberty 
Association exceeded the 1986 goal by $18,605.43. Total gifts for 1987 to Lottie Moon 
were $135,512.62. 

Lacy Buie at Liberty Church, encouraged letters of support to the NC Public Utilities 
Commission and the DC Board of Commissioners for a 911 emergency number to be 
placed in Davidson County by 1991. 

Bill Sutphin asked that the tabled motion concerning paying off the remainder of the 
loan be placed back into motion. After a brief discussion Charles Penninger was asked if 
in his opinion it would be wise to pay the loan off at this time, his response was that it 
would not. The motion was withdrawn. 

The meeting was closed with prayer by Eugene Elmore. 

MAY 16, 1988 

Moderator, Roy Cantrell opened the meeting with scripture reading from Acts 16:9-10.

Centennial Celebration. The annual meeting will be at Oak Hill. 
BROTHERHOOD: 

NO Baptist Men responded with the NC Convention's request for 100,000 bibles with

Russia, there are seven Russians using the bible. The Caswell renovation projects con- 
clude this week. "The buck doesn't stop here." NC Baptist Men have been asked to ac- 
cept the maintenance for one cottage at a Baptist Home. Liberty Association has ac- 
cepted a cottage at Mills Home.

ferences will be at Campbell University May 20 & 21. June 10 & 11 there will be a 
Workshop for RA leaders at Camp Caraway. 

Charles Tanner expressed great appreciation for the willingness to work on the 
physical needs of the Baptist Children's Homes. 

Finance Committee Chariman, Brooks Hunt made a motion that we agree to pay tui- 
tion for Osbert James to go to summer school at Wingate. The college will pay Vi of the 
tuition as previously agreed. The schedule calls for Osbert to graduate in December of 
1989. 

MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

1. The Missions Committee recommended that Executive Committee ask churches to 
designate VBS offerings to help support our Associational Migrant Ministry. This offering 
would help cover expenses for a honorarium , mileage and refreshments. Brenda Em- 
mons has the help of Carlos Oliveras in securing a leader to help in a bible study every 
other Saturday evening June 25 through September 10. It is expected to cost $50 per 
Saturday. Charles Tanner made a motion to accept this recommendation. It was 
amended on a motion by R.N. Hardin to pay any expenses incurred, not covered by the 
VBS offerings, out of regular budget. The motion carried. 

2. A recommendation was also accepted to ask the Nominating Committee to appoint 
a Long Range Planning Committee. 

3. Approval was sought for Leonard's participation in the Brazilian mission project. 
Leonard gave details asking for 20 participants, 10 pastors and 10 laypeople. Leonard at- 
tended the training session at Caraway in February. He was impressed with the details, 
dreams and the whole concept of the Brazilian project. A motion was made and accepted 
that Liberty Association pay Leonard's expenses for the first trip September 29 - October 
10. 

Leonard announced an interest meeting May 24 at 7:30 P.M. at the Associational 
Office for those interested in the Brazil trip. 

Leonard shared a concern for the decline in the response and attendance at the 
breakfast meetings. The next meeting is May 23rd with Gary Marsh from Green Street 
with a program on "Stress in the Ministry." 

Dates for Key Leadership were announced: Tuesday, August 16 - 7-9 P.M. - FBC, Lex- 
ington. 

The meeting was adjourned with prayer by Bill Sutphin.

School Baptist Young Men Officers and Advisors Conference, October 15 & 16; Wake 
Forest/RA Day, October 22; and RA Counselor Campcraft Training, October 28-30. Rev. 
Cantrell informed us that Carl Collins is approved to assist in High School Baptist Young 
Men's programs and Mrs. Cantrell is state approved for RA programs. 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

1 . Barbara Foster gave the Migrant Missions Report: There was 5-7 adults attending 
the meetings during the summer. There was fellowship, preaching and a meal each time. 
There was $33.00 left over to apply to next years ministry. 

2. The Missions Committee recommends that each church ask one of the Brazilian 
volunteers to speak in their churches upon return and before December 25. This is an on- 
going five-year project and it is important that we begin to build interest and cultivate 
more volunteers. 

3. It was recommended that we take an offering at the annual meeting September 27 to 
be used for the plane fare for Osbert and Margaret James. This recommendation was ac- 
cepted. Carl Hemphill recommended that if sufficient funds are not offered that the 
balance be paid for from our treasury. This was also approved and that if there is an ex- 
cess of offering any over and above will be applied to Margaret's education at the Com- 
munity College in Wingate. 

Noting that this would delete a project for the WMU & Baptist Men, Barbara told us 
that WMU will be asked to provide knee socks for the NO Correctional Center in Raleigh 
and that churches will be asked to adopt house parents at the Children's Homes. This in- 
formation was free and there was no added charge. 

Leonard impressed everyone with freshly printed copies for the annual meeting. 

He requested VBS reports from those churches that have failed to send them. 

He reported that of 8 churches responding that only 3 churches have agreed to par- 
ticipate in the Gardner-Webb Ministerial Education Day, October 16. 

The dates for the mission trip to Brazil are September 29 through October 12. Those 
going are: Leonard Rollins, Morris Hollifield, Lamar Moore, Edward Pigg, Mike Vipper- 
man, Roy Cantrell, and Laymen Matthew Dunn of Abbotts Creek Church and Don Williard 
and John Young from Wal!burg Church. Leonard noted of the critical time in the lives of 
those people there and a need to share the hope of our world with them. Please be in 
prayer for their spiritual preparation and the witness they will present. He encour- 
aged churches to remember in prayer these going and also for future opportunities; con- 
struction, youth, family ministries. 

Roy instructed the Nominating Committee to select a Long Range Planning Commit- 
tee and that the Nominating Committee for 89-90 will instruct the Place and Preacher 
Committee to assign places for the next ten annual meetings. 

John Pace reported that one hour and ten minutes will be given on Tuesday night for 
the presentation of the gift of the Associational home to the Rollinses. There will be a 
special bulletin for this portion of the program. There will be a time of expressing ap- 
preciation for the faithfulness Polly has so generously given over these years. 

The meeting was adjourned with prayer by Brooks Hunt. 

^ Missions Committee Report 

JANUARY 25, 1988 
Our meeting was opened with prayer by Gene Smith. 

Leonard reported on his Brazilian trip. It was a good experience. He was met with en- 
thusiastic pastors. They are looking for a team from Liberty Association in September 
1988 for house to house visitation and nightly revivals. Leonard will attend a training ses- 
sion for leaders February 5 at Caraway. 

We were given a financial update (attached) for Osbert James. It was also reported 
that Margaret is attending commmunity college. 

Brenda Emmons gave an update on the migrant ministry. She told of several things

-33- 



our prayer of support and guidance in this ongoing ministry. She asks if health kit items 
could be collected at the annual WMU meeting. 

Leonard shared the legal document concerning the selling/buying of the associational 
house. It is to be voted on in Executive Committee for official action and signatures. 

Roy Cantrell closed the meeting with prayer. 

MAY 16, 1988 

Barbara Foster called the meeting to order and Doris Lopp opened with prayer. 

Brenda Emmons brought an update on the Migrant Ministry. With the help of Carlos 
Oliveras, she has someone to teach a bible study every other Saturday evening beginning 
June 25 through September 10. She would like to ask for funds to pay mileage and a 
small honorarium for these men who come. After discussion we decided to recommend 
to the Executive Committee that churches be urged to designate their VBS offerings for 
the migrant ministry. 

Leonard reported that he had received an official request from Brazil for house to 
house visitation and evangelistic preaching September 29 - October 10, 1988. There are 
10 churches in the Brazilian Association participating (100 percent). The team will consist 
of 20 people. There will be 10 preachers and 10 laypeople. The cost will be approximately 
$1 ,500.00. There is a meeting for those interested May 24 at the Associational office. We 
will recommend to the Executive Committee that $1,500.00 be approved for Leonard's ex- 
penses in this endeavor. 

Roy shared information from Key Leadership about forming a Long-Range Planning 
Committee. This would be recommended to the Executive Committee. 

R.N. Hardin reported that NC Baptist Men are asked to sponsor a cottage at one of the 
Children's Homes as a work project since the Caswell project has been completed. 

Gene Smith closed the meeting with prayer. 

SEPTEMBER 19, 1988 

Brenda Emmons sent a report from the Migrant Ministry. There were 5-7 adults at each 
service and fellowship this summer. They had a meal, fellowship and preaching at each 
meeting. The most attending was 10. There is $33.00 remaining in the treasury to begin 
next year. She asked for prayer that she might present a lifestyle witness to a girl named 
Maria and for churches to consider using VBS offerings next year for the Migrant 
Ministry. 

Leonard reported six preachers and three laymen will be going on the Brazil trip: 
Leonard, Roy Cantrell, Morris Hollifield, Lamar Moore, Edward Pigg, Mike Vipperman, 
Matthew Dunn from Abbotts Creek Church and Don Williard and John Young from 
Wallburg Church. The dates are September 29 through October 12. Leonard will en- 
courage churches to invite one of these people to speak in their churches before 
Christmas. 

We discussed the Baptist Men and WMU project to buy plane tickets for Osbert and 
Margaret James to return home for Christmas. We decided that an offering be taken on 
Tuesday, September 27 at the Associational meeting. 

Leonard shared that there has not been much response to the Gardner-Webb College 
Ministerial Education Day. 

We also decided that next year's Nominating Committee (1989) would instruct the 
Place and Preacher Committee with the responsibility of selecting the places for the an- 
nual meetings for the next 10 years. 

Migrant Ministries Report 

Greetings! 

The report on Migrant Ministries is a continuing process in our Association. This sum- 
mer, meetings were held every other Saturday beginning in June and going through 
September 10, 1988. Some of the crops that the migrants harvest in our area are tobacco, 
cucumbers, squash, zuchinni, tomatoes, melons, etc. Sometimes their work days fell on 
our meeting days and they would still be in the fields past seven and eight o'clock. 



-34- 



Besides this obstacle, a visit just prior to the Saturday meeting would have to be made 
since there are no telephones or communication otherwise. In spite of this, God has 
blessed thru the faithful preaching of Rev. Carlos Oliveros who comes each time to 
preach the gospel in their language. The scripture in Romans 10:13 & 14 says "For 
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved; How then shall they call 
on Him in whom they have not believed and how shall they believe in Him of whom they 
have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher." 

The Lord has also provided needs through Victory Baptist Church, Pastor Gary Myers 
and the congregation. Without those facilities, this ministry would not be possible. A 
word of appreciation also goes to all the volunteers who have cooked, served and 
assisted. Thanks go to all you churches. Baptist Women groups, and Vacation Bible 
School groups who have supplied health kit items and donations to the cause of this 
ministry. Because of this, we distributed more than 60 health kits this summer. 

The average church attendance was five to seven migrants; with 10 at the last meeting. 
There were always four or five workers who assisted at each meeting; of which there was 
fellowship, preaching and ending with a meal in the church fellowship hall. 

Please continue to pray for the souls of these dear people who have so little materially, 
but yet have the same spiritual and physical needs as we do. I close with this challenge 
-ask God to show us as individuals where we can minister and witness more effectively 
for Jesus! Mark 16:15 says, "And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach 
the gospel to every creature." As we go and as the world comes to us, are we giving them 
the message they need to hear? Truly we are PARTNERS ON MISSION in the Liberty 
Baptist Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Brenda Emmons 



Director of Missions Report 

The 1987-88 associational year will be remembered as the year of the Brazil Partner- 
ship and the 25th anniversary celebration of our service as Director of Missions. 

Brooks Hunt, pastor at Wallburg, and I went to Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 15-24, 
1987. This Partnership Mission will link associations in North Carolina with associations 
in the state of Sao Paulo for three to five years. The Brazilians have asked for such 
linkages to help them in the beginning of one thousand new churches by the ye^r 1992. 
Our Association has been paired with the Media Araraquarense Association (Sab Jose 
do Rio Preto). There will be nine of us, six poachers and three laymen, going to Rio Preto 
September 29 - October 12 to do evangelistic visitation and preaching in the churches. 

The "anniversary celebration" on March 12, 1988, at Lexington First Baptist in our 
honor was truly a blessing. More than 500 people canrie to express their appreciation, and 
for this we are grateful. The Tuesday evening session of the Annual Meeting on 
September 27, 1988, at Thomasville First Baptist was given over to a more formal and of- 
ficial celebration of our anniversary, and in that service the transfer of the deed to the 
associational home was made. Your generosity will make it possible for the house to be 
ours when I retire. Your friendship and cooperation across these years have made our 
service to this association a "labor of love." We promise to each of you our very best in 
the years that remain. 

In the kind of ministry that is carried out on a regular basis, I have been in 36 of the 43 
churches for at least one meeting during the calendar year, in addition to regular 
preaching services, I taught the book of Malachi at Churchland, Reeds, Thomasville, 
First, Center Hill, Coggins Memorial, and Liberty. I taught the Home Mission Study nine 
times - at Center Hill, Churchland, Lexington, First, Southside, Reeds, Mountain View, 
New Friendship, Smith Grove, and Welcome, First. I preached the Homecoming message 
at Community, Faith, Wallburg, and Southside. ! showed slides from Togo at Southgate, 
First Baptist, Stoneville, North Carolina, Park Place, and Lexington First Baptist. I shared 
the Brazil experience at Fork Baptist in Davie County, Trinity, Lexington, First, and 
Thomasville, First. 

I spoke to the Baptist Men at Southgate, Stoner's Grove, and Lexington, First; spoke 
on World Hunger at Liberty; and conducted two worship services in First Baptist Church, 
Sanford, North Carolina. 

-35- 



I participated In tlie following special events: dedication address for fellowship 
building at Smith Grove; Gideon banquet at Lexington Y.M.C.A.; "Bib and Tucker" ban- 
quet at Lexington, First; ground-breaking address at North Lexington; public hearing on 
hazardous waste dump at Lexington Senior High School; associational W.M.U. Prayer 
Retreat for Knox County Baptist Association in Tennessee; North Lexington Deacons 
and Wives Christmas party; Senior Adult Day at Lexington, First; and Senior Adult Rally 
at Mills Home. 

I was involved in a regional evangelism conference at Caraway and January Bible 
Study seminar at Wake Forest University. I also attended the Baptist State Convention in 
Greensboro; Evangelism Conference in Greensboro; Directors of Missions/Convention 
Staff At Caraway; State Vacation Bible School Clinic in High Point; Directors of Missions 
Update in Nashville, Tennessee; Key Leadership at Ridgecrest; Directors of Missions 
Summer Conference at Wingate; and the Southern Baptist Convention in San Antonio, 
Texas. 

I have given assistance to Community, Greenwood, and Denton, First, while they were 
without a pastor, and helped the Nominating, Place and Preacher, Finance Program, and 
Hunger Awareness Committees. 

Our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for 1987 was the best our churches have ever 
given: $135,962.62; the associational office is debt free; 41 from our association con- 
ducted Vacation Bible Schools in Nevis and Antigua. We are involved in Migrant Mis- 
sions and the D.C.C.C. Campus Ministry, and we remain committed to Osbert and 
Margaret James in their educational pursuits before they return to Grenada. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Leonard Rollins 



Evangelism Report 

Once again our denominational calendar shows that we have come to the end of the 
year. 1988 will be known as a special year in many respects. I wish to commend the chur- 
ches that have led our association in winning the lost to Jesus Christ and beginning the 
process of discipling by baptizing those they have won. Several churches have done an 
outstanding job and it is clear that the Great Commission is a priority to these churches. 
However, many churches have made it clear that evangelism is not a priority. This sad- 
dens my heart, as I am sure it does the heart of God. 

"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth bearing 
precious seed shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." 
(Psalms 126:5, 6) The psalmist shows us that evangelism must end with a broken heart. 
Let me encourage you to pray that God would break your heart for the lost. As we spend 
time on our knees, God will make it clear to us that people without Christ are hopelessly 
lost and bound for hell. God also tells us in His word we are to go and to sow the seed of 
the gospel. Not every one will sprout and grow into a fruitful plant, but that's not our con- 
cern. God gives the increase, yet He calls us to sow precious seed. When we faithfully 
sow, we understand that we will have cause for rejoicing, because God will give us fruit 
for our iabor. 

I call upon pastors, staff members, deacons, Sunday School teachers, leaders and 
members of the churches of the Liberty Association to faithfully pray, go, and allow God 
to give the increase. 

Thank you for the pleasure of serving among you for the past seven years. May God 
stir your hearts toward evangelism. 

Joyfully HIS, 
Allen Welborn

Student Ministry Report 



Since 1922 Southern Baptists liave supported student ministry aimed at reaching col- 
lege students on campuses across the United States. And since 1982 Liberty Baptist 
Association has supported an active Christian outreach on our own Davidson County 
Community College Campus. Dr. Jim Helvey of First Baptist, Lexington is the faculty ad- 
visor for this group. Mrs. Douglas Huff serves as Volunteer Director for the weekly on- 
campus meetings and is our liason with the Youth and Campus Ministry staff of the Bap- 
tist State Convention of North Carolina. 

The purpose of Student Ministry is "to assist in fulfilling the mission of the church by 
leading students and others in the academic community to faith in God through Jesus 
Christ as Savior and Lord, to guide them in Christian growth and church membership." 
We seek to do this on campus through the organization Alpha Omega. As the only Chris- 
tian organization on campus we seek to reach Christian students of all denominations 
and to represent the cause of Christ in love to non-Christians on campus. Groups like 
ours function as Baptist Student Unions on 43 campuses in North Carolina, 26 of which 
are staffed by volunteers like myself. 

This past year our campus group sent three students to represent us at two National 
Student Conferences. Two young men, Sammy Hege and John Drohl, attended the 
Global Concerns Conference in Washington, D.C. just after Christmas holidays. This 
event was sponsored by the Student Ministry Departments of some seven state conven- 
tions and explored the needs of students to see the whole world that Jesus loved and to 
connect personal spiritual growth with the needs of people who need our concern. Stu- 
dent Tony Kirk attended the National BSU Retreat in Baton Rouge, LA in March with 
thousands of black students from across America. 

Thanks to committed students almost every church is now a "college church". One 
out of every two students is a commuter and this trend is not expected to diminish. 
Students from our church communities are attending not only DCCC but other triad area 
colleges and universities as well. This begins the third year that Liberty Baptist Associa- 
tion has had a committee to work not only with our campus ministry, but with our chur- 
ches as well. Only half of our churches in Liberty Baptist Association provide a specific 
class for young single adults. Our committee has begun collecting resources to provide 
motivation and know how to aid churches who need to reach out to this age group. Our 
committee sent out a resource mailing in the spring to churches where we presently have 
Sunday School classes for young singles. We want to be available as resource persons 
to visit in any of our churches or to work as consultants with individuals or groups in- 
terested in beginning an outreach to young singles in Davidson County. It is crucial to 
our future that these young adults feel there is room for them in our churches. 

We are committed to the task of reaching and ministering to young single adults in 
Davidson County. This year two of our committee members, Mickey Sharpe and Dianne 
Sulger, are singles who were once Involved in our campus ministry right here at DCCC. 
They both enthusiasticly agreed to serve in this capacity that they might be involved in 
assuring that someone would be there to reach students and other young singles who 
are now wondering how to go on in their faith pilgrimage. We all offer ourselves to see 
this need met, this dream fulfilled. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gaylin Huff, Chairperson 



Wonnan's Missionary Union Report 

1987-88 for WMU has been a year of reflection and celebration. Here and everywhere 
across the Southern Baptist Convention, we have remembered our foremothers who 
established WMU in Richmond, Virginia on May 11, 1888. A fabulous 100th Birthday 
Celebration was held in Richmond May 13-14, 1988, attended by a delegation of women 
from Liberty Baptist Association. We also enjoyed a century celebration at First Baptist 
Church, Lexington on May 21 , 1988, sponsored by the Baptist Women's organization of 
the Associational WMU. The theme was "Precious Memories." At that event, we also 



-37- 



recognized and honored our Director of Missions, Tlie Reverend Leonard Rollins and Mrs. 
Rollins on their 25th Anniversary with our Association. 

Another highlight of the year took place at Caraway Conference Center October 30-31 , 
1987, when the WMU held our annual Prayer Retreat. Dr. Charles Talbert, professor of 
Religion, Wake Forest University was Prayer Leader, and used the theme, "Gifted, Called, 
Empowered." 

March 13, 1988 was the date of a reception held at First Baptist Church, Lexington to 
honor Reverend and Mrs. Rollins on their 25th Anniversary. WMU members representing 
local churches joined with pastors and others, and served as hostesses. This special 
event was organized by the Anniversary Committee of the Association led by the 
Reverend John Pace. 

The Associational WMU Council met quarterly, and Council Directors were dedicated 
and concerned, working with local church pastors and women to the end that we saw 
new WMU work started throughout the Association. 

Our 82nd annual meeting of the WMU, Liberty Baptist Association was held at Oak Hill 
Memorial Church, Thomasville. Program participants included the Reverend and Mrs. 
Osbert James of Grenada who are sponsored by the Association in Ministerial education 
at Wingate College. 

On August 22, 1988, the WMU joined with the Association Brotherhood organization 
for an evening of training conferences designed to prepare leaders for their respon- 
sibilities in their churches in the coming year.

Resolutions Committee Report 

September 28, 1988 



WHEREAS the Liberty Baptist Association, meeting in its 156tli Annual Session in the 
First Baptist Church and Park Place Baptist Churches on September 27 and 28, 1988 has 
experienced God's outpouring of grace and mercy through which He has enabled this 
body of messengers to assemble for fellowship, inspiration, and the exaltation of the 
gospel of Jesus Christ; 

AND WHEREAS the 43 churches that comprise this association have exemplified a 
cooperative spirit through their support of the association's evangelistic and missionary 
endeavors to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, having been further challenged by our 
theme, "Partners In Missions," 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the messengers to the 156th Annual Session of 
the Liberty Baptist Association, assembled in the Park Place Baptist Church in 
Thomasville, on September 28, 1988, do hereby:

4. Express our warmest gratitude to our Director of Missions, Leonard Rollins, and 
his wife for their untiring devotion to the cause of Christ as observed in their 
deep concern for and ministry to the people of Brazil in the Brazilian Partnership,

them enter into his 26th year of service as our Director of Missions. 

5. Express appreciation to all who served on associational committees, and submit- 
ted reports for these sessions, and others who have participated in the work of 
the Liberty Baptist Association during this past year. 

6. Express encouragement to the messengers of these sessions and the churches 
they represent, with the sincere hope that each one will return to their church 
with a renewed commitment to be partners on mission, for the salvation of the 
lost, the strengthening of believers, and the glory of God. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thurman Fritts, Leona Foster, 
Lee Home, Warren Kerr, Chairman,

A Brief History of First Baptist Church, Thomasville 

Information by Mary Matthews 

Deeds recorded in the Register of Deeds office show that in 1860 John W. Thomas 
made an agreement with the Baptist Church and the Methodist Church to give each a lot 
on condition that they build suitable church buildings. Records show that the Baptist 
Church must have been nearing completion in August 1862. A deed made in 1863 giving 
the lot on Randolph Street to the trustees of the church covers the central part of the 
larger holdings of the church today. 

The exact date of its constitution is not known, but was during the year 1857. It was 
received into the fellowship of Liberty Association, August 1859. It was represented by 
the following delegates: Aquilla Jones, John Hudson, and S.M. Dorsett. At this meeting it 
reported nine members and Rev. John Mitchell as pastor. Also at this meeting of the 



■43- 



association it was voted that the funds in the hands of the former treasury be divided bet- 
ween the struggling church at High Point and the Thomasville Church. The first church 
building was completed in 1863. 

The church beginning with a membership of nine never had a membership of 44 until 
1888. Sunday School was organized in 1862 and in 1865 the church building was used as 
a Confederate Hospital. The first W.M.U. was organized in 1897 under the direction of 
Mrs. W.H. Rich. 

In April 1904 Mrs. George P. Harrill, Miss Laura Lazenby and Miss Cora Morton, 
daughter of former pastor Hezikah Morton, organized the Sunbeams. About 1910 the 
older Sunbeams desired a society of their own age and a Young Woman's Auxiliary was 
organized. To complete the mission program the Royal Ambassadors was organized for 
the boys. 

Plans were completed and excavation begun for a new building in 1911. This was for- 
mally opened in March 1913. The original building was moved away to become Southside 
Baptist Church, the first mission effort. 

The church was able to discontinue the need for funds from the State Mission Board in 
1919. Rev. C.E. Trueblood became the first full time pastor in 1923. Major improvement 
was undertaken in 1926 under the leadership of Rev. M.O. Alexander. This growth includ- 
ed ground-floor Sunday School rooms, new heating plant, pipe organ, the purchase of ad- 
joining land and a house for a pastorium. 

In 1930 the Carolina Avenue Baptist Church was fostered by First Baptist. Much 
growth took place during the next few years and during this time 50 members organized 
what was to become Park Place Baptist Church. In 1946, Greenwood Baptist Church was 
fostered by First Baptist. A Youth Education Building was begun in 1952 under the direc- 
tion of Rev. Charles F. Leek. 

In 1957 F. Standley Hardee, Jr. became pastor and under his leadership the debt for 
the Youth building was liquidated and more than 500 members were added to the church. 
In 1959 a survey and planning committee was appointed to study the feasibility of erec- 
ting a new sanctuary and adult building. Three years later the fifty year old brick structure 
was torn down and new buildings begun. These buildings were completed in 1963 at a 
cost of about $360,000.00. Six days of formal dedication were held in March 1964. 

On April 1, 1965, Woodrow W. Hill became pastor and he brought new strength and 
leadership. During the next five years the church saw great spiritual growth, unity and 
settlement of many debts. 

Dr. Joseph Hester came to serve the church in 1971 . Under his enthusiastic leadership 
with youth involvement this church saw much growth. After his departure in 1974 several 
interim pastors filled the pulpit. One being George E. Williamson, who brought greater 
unity to the church along with spirit filled sermons. After four years of service he retired, 
a second time. 

Rev. Michael J. Vipperman was called in 1981 and is today the strong pastor and 
leader. 

As more parking space was needed additional land was purchased and made 
available for the purpose. Thus, the small lot given the church by John Thomas now en- 
compasses more than an acre. 

This church in its long history has been mission minded. Those serving from this 
church on home and foreign fields are: Miss Maurine Perryman - Ajulin, Jordan; Gary and 
Tricia Payne, Wales, United Kingdom; Jim and Mary Lockridge, Phillipines; Jerry and 
Ruth Potter, North Carolina Ministers to the Deaf; Paul and Collis Charlton, Recife, Brazil; 
Carter and Agnes Morgan, retired. 

Sunday School had been a very important factor in the life of this church. The highest 
numbers were reached in the early sixties, decreasing in more recent years, largely due 
to smaller families. 

The recent years of history have been characterized by applying new approaches to 
established ministries. The deacon ministry has undergone an exciting transformation. 
Many Southern Baptist churches have seen the deacon body evolve into a simple ex- 
ecutive board of men who administer the business of the church. First Baptist wanted 
something better from and for their ordained men. They wanted New Testament 
deacons. Therefore, the New Testament emphasis of servanthood was implemented and 
is now the dominant theme of the deacon ministry. The administrative work of the church 
has been properly left to the committees. The deacons meet to pray, study, train and 



-44- 



fellowship. They go forth to minister to their assigned families more effectively, and have 
become instrumental in the pastoral care of the membership. 

Another fresh approach to ministry is the Thursday Day of Prayer. We have asked for 
prayer warriors to assume 30 minute segments of the day in order to keep the praise, pur- 
poses, and needs of the congregation before the Lord. A prayer directive is provided for 
these men and women which enables them to pray specifically and encompassingly. It is 
always a joy for the pastor to tell a hurting individual that prayer will be made all day on 
his or her behalf. 

A ministery for children of broken homes has been implemented. The children are 
picked up every Wednesday afternoon for recreation, Bible study, and refreshments. The 
name "Big A Club" has been given to this group and Wednesday afternoons was chosen 
for this ministry since most of these children are visiting with the other parent on the 
weekends. 

First Baptist is undertaking a bold approach to outreach. Every family in the 
Thomasville phone directory, not known to our people, is being called to survey the 
spiritual need of our city and surrounding community. If a family does not have a local 
church home and is not actively affiliated with a church, a follow-up phone call or visit is 
made. If the follow-up effort is not immediately fruitful, the pastor sends a letter thanking 
them for the courtesy, reminding them of our open invitation to worship. 

Not only have ministry methods been kept up to date and in line with New Testament 
principles, we are endeavoring to catch up technologically. The church office had been 
renovated and re-equipped with modern machines, which includes a new IBM computer 
with the CIS software that is provided by the Sunday School Board. This enables us to 
administer and minister more effectively. The investment of time, money and effort in 
modernizing the church office is proving to be invaluable.

We continue the historian's report today with the histories of the churches hosting the 
annual session of Liberty Baptist Association. Again, we express our appreciation to 
those who provided information. 

Park Place Baptist Church 

Information by Mr. Richard Thayer and Mrs. Gaylin Huff 

In the summer of 1936 the pastors of Mills Home Baptist Church, Carolina Avenue and 
First Baptist Churches established a mission Sunday School in a small brick store 
building on the corner of Reid and Emma Streets. This became known as the Reid Street 
Mission. Dr. W.K. McGee and Rev. J. A. Neilson served as co-pastors, with Mr. Talford 
Maley being the first Sunday School Superintendent. 

On October 23, 1938, members of this mission along with Dr. M.A. Huggins met and 
organized the church. The council present at the meeting consisted of deacons and 
visitors from First Church, Mills Home and Carolina Avenue Baptist Churches. Dr. McGee 
and Rev. Neilson co-pastored the newly organized Reid Street Baptist Church until 
December 1 1th when Rev. H. Otis Lanning became the first pastor. His salary was partial- 
ly paid by the Home Mission Board. The charter members were: Mrs. Ailene Hilton 
Batten, Mrs. Betty Lou Pressley Bauer, Mr. & Mrs. Ira Bryant, Mr. & Mrs. A.C. Coggins, 
Mrs. Mozelle Copeley, Mr. Paul Gulp, Mr. & Mrs. J.R. Duke, Mrs. Maxine Ward Flowers, Mr. 
& Mrs. A.A. Harris, Mrs. E.D. Hartsell, Mr. Joe Hilton, Mrs. L. Hinkle, Mrs. D.T. Kennedy, 
Mr. & Mrs. A.L Kirkman, Mr. Darrell Kirkman, Mr. J.V. Luther, Mrs. Leia Hill Luther, Vernon 
Luther, Mrs. Cletus Moser, Mrs. Eugene Perdue, Mr. & Mrs. W.B. Pressley, Mr. & Mrs. S.A. 
Renegar, Mrs. W.H.A. Rogers, Mrs. Daphne Pressley Roberts, Mr. & Mrs. Dallas Shore, 
Mr. & Mrs. Pate Stewart, Mrs. J.C. Ward, Mr. & Mrs. Millard Wilson, Mrs. Dorette Perdue 
Hatfield.

In 1939 a piece of property facing Reid and Kern Streets was purchased for $1 ,850.00 
on which a frame church building was constructed for $2,500.00. This same year the 
church was accepted into the Liberty Baptist Association with a membership of 67 and 
168 in Sunday School. On March 1943 Rev. Lanning resigned to enter the Air Corps as a 
Chaplain. Under his five years of leadership the church has become well grounded in its 
various ministries. 

On August 22, 1943, Rev. R.L Kiser became the church's second pastor, serving full 
time at $35.00 per week. By 1944 the church was second in the Association per capita in 
giving and has continued to support Association work. At the end of 1945, the church 
membership was 152 with 220 enrolled in Sunday School and an average attendance of 
124. 

Church growth continued in 1946 whjen membership swelled to 176. The church was 
also supporting a strong Woman's Missionary Union, graded Sunday School, and having 
Vacation Bible School each summer. 

September 14 1947, eleven years after the mission Sunday School began, the first 
Homecoming was held. D.W.K. McGee, founder and the first pastor, and Rev. Otis Lann- 
ing were the speakers. 

Ordination service was held on December 5, 1947, for Inman Stewart, the first member 
to be licensed to preach. 

With the resignation of Rev. Kiser on May 5, 1948, the church called Rev. M. Pegram 
who began his ministry in January 1949. In the Fall of 1949 a nine room parsonage was 
built for $18,000.00 on Culbreth Avenue. In June 1950 a lot on Fife & Kern Streets was pur- 
chased and the ground-breaking services were held for a new church building on June 
7th. Since the new church would not be on Reid Street the membership voted in March 
1952 to change the name to Park Place Baptist Church. The members "marched" to the 
new church for the first worship service September 12, 1954. 

The minutes during these years pay tribute to several lay persons whose leadership 
helped mold the church. Lafayette Hinkle was a leader in construction of the parsonage. 
J.J. Embry was a deacon and committed soul winner. Mrs. Millard Wilson was applauded 
for her faithful years of service as church clerk. 

Dr. Pegram's aggressive leadership led to the building of a scout and fellowship hall in 
the summer of 1956. In October 1956 Don Moore was called to be Minister of Education 
and Youth. Due to the pastor's failing health Rev. Moore was called to be Associate 
Pastor in March 1957 to work with Dr. Pegram. Rev. Moore, a student at Southeastern 
Seminary assumed the pastorate on January 1, 1958, upon the retirement of Dr. Pegram. 

in March 1960 Larry Frakes was called by the church to be its part-time Music Director. 
He served until 1962, when he was ordained and entered full time ministry. 

In September 1960 two and one-half acres of land behind the church was purchased 
and in 1961 a house and lot adjacent to the church was bought. 

In February 1961 Bill Johnson, church member, was ordained into the ministry. Later 
the same year Charles Jones was recommended as a ministrial student and was li- 
censed by the church in May 1963. 

Rev. Moore resigned in May 1962 to become Director of Counseling and Instructor in 
Psychology at Gardner-Webb College and Dr. F.M. Powell began serving as interim 
pastor. 

The church voted on August 5, 1962, to call Rev. Judson Rotan to succeed Rev. Moore 
as pastor. 

In May 1963 a church library was started under the direction of Mrs. Irene Lassiter. This 
was added to the film library begun in 1958. 

When Park Place Baptist Church celebrated its 25th Anniversary on October 23, 1963, 
it was noted that the church had "experienced a successful growth and today stands as 
a mark of great distinction in its community and town." There were three services held 
that day. Dr. McGee brought the morning message and Dr. Pegram delivered the evening 
message. At that time the church's membership was 278 and the budget was $19,000.00. 
The Sunday School enrollment was 230, with an average attendance of 126. The Training 
Union had 60, the WMU 65, and the Brotherhood 25. 

On November 27, 1966, Rev. Rotan resigned. But even as its leader felt the call to move 
on, God was calling another minister within the congregation. On July 9, 1967, the church 
ordained Don Jones to the gospel ministry. 



-46- 



New enthusiasm was brought to the church with the calling of Rev. Joe Seay, who 
began his work February 25, 1968. In the spring of 1971 renovation on the church, par- 
sonage and Fellowship Hall began and was completed in June at a cost of $13,829.81. 
Four years later the Fellowship Hall was enlarged. 

On April 1 1 , 1973, Rev. Seay resigned and on December 23, 1973 the church voted to 
call Rev. Mike Wilkinson as pastor. 

In September 1975 the church sponsored Rev. Wilkinson for a six week PastoralCare 
Course at Baptist Hospital. One of the men instrumental in this program at the hospital 
was the man who helped plant the seed that would someday be Park Place, Dr. W.K. 
McGee. 

A church bus was purchased in April 1977 and was the beginning of many travels for 
church members. 

Park Place celebrated its 40th Anniversary October 22, 1978, with a former member. 
Rev. Don Jones, as Homecoming speaker. 

It was during Rev. Wilkinson's ministry that Terry King, a Thomasville youth, was con- 
verted and is preparing for full time ministry. 

Rev. Wilkinson, well loved at Park Place, resigned on March 22, 1981. 

On July 26th the church voted to call Rev. Douglas Huff. He began his ministry on 
August 2nd and was ordained on September 27, 1981 . Under his leadership a baptistry 
was installed in 1984, more property purchased for additional parking and in 1986 the 
sanctuary was again renovated. 

The church sent Rev. Huff to Ridgecrest to obtain training in the MasterLife 
Discipleship program which he taught to the church members during 1986-87. Rev. & Mrs. 
Huff were also sent to Washington, D.C. to attend the Billy Graham School of Evangelism 
held in conjunction with the Greater Washington Crusade. In July of this year Rev. Huff 
traveled to the Island of Nevis with 27 others from the Association to preach, witness and 
minister to those people. 

Park Place's roots are deeply entwined in the soil of Thomasville. Through the years 
the church has helped many families through crisis situations with counseling, food and 
financial support. The church used it's resources in the 1940's and 50's to help pay for a 
Bible teacher in the public schools. In the 60's its pastors shared with other ministers in 
presenting morning devotions on WTNC radio station. The church backs efforts to keep 
out the sale of alcoholic beverages in the city. The church also financially supports the 
work of the Salvation Army in Thomasville and the Chaplains at Community General 
Hospital and High Point Regional Hospital. The church has continually increased the 
percentage of receipts given away to meet the needs around the world. Nineteen percent 
of all general offerings goes to the Cooperative Program. Three percent goes to Baptist 
mission work in Davidson County. 

Two consistent priorities of the church throughout its history have been making time 
for joint prayer and offering Bible Study for all ages. The Sunday School was where Park 
Place began and in all its 50 years the study of God's word has remained central. 

From the forties when Reid Street saw many young people saved in cottage prayer 
meetings, on through to the eighties, this church has sought to reach young people for 
Christ. Reaching youth is a constant challenge, changing with each new generation. 
Several times during its history the church has hired additional staff members to invest 
extended time in ministry to youth. And in-between those times many faithful Sunday 
School teachers, chaperones, and youth sponsors have spent countless volunteer hours 
seeking to point youth to the saviour. 

God has blessed this church with good leadership. The deacon body has varied in 
number through the years, but has been the core of leadership in the church. Many men 
and women have led program organizations, taught Sunday School, and served as clerk, 
treasurer, church secretary and numerous other positions. Although their names are not 
listed here, heaven holds their reward. 

The members of this church are not a group of perfect people, but a band of pilgrims, 
seeking to learn and work together, fulfilling the mandates of our Lord Jesus Christ. May 
the years until the Lord returns find us doing just that!

Southside Baptist Church History 

Information by Esther J. House 

In 1913 members of the First Baptist Church, Thomasville, began work on a mission in 
the southside area of Thomasville. On June 19, 1913, the Amazon Mission was organized 
with 24 charter members, namely; Mr. & Mrs. Solmon Petree, Mr. & Mrs. Allie McKoin, Mr. 
& Mrs. Willie Byerly, Mr. & Mrs. Thad Byerly, Mr. & Mrs. Earlie Byerly, Adie Hill, Ed Beck, 
Stokes Basinger, a Mr. Sebastina, Mrs. Mudy Beck and Ada Scarlett. 

Land for the first church building was donated by Mr. Solomon Petree, and the first 
church was the original building of the First Baptist Church-being moved to the forks of 
Fisher Ferry Street and Bryan Road. Several additions were made to this building over 
the years. 

In 1920 the Amazon Mission, now known as Southside Baptist Church, applied for 
membership into the Liberty Baptist Association. The report was adopted and thus the 
Southside Baptist Church was received into full membership of the Association. 

Rev. G.A. Martin, Rev. Hezekiah Morton, Rev. Chambers and Rev. C.E. Rissman were 
the first pastors of Southside. In 1920 the membership was 27, with 65 enrolled in Sunday 
School. Worship services were held on the first and third Sundays of each month. 

Southside secured the service of Rev. E.W. Byerly in 1924. The worship services were 
held every Sunday. 

In 1926, Rev. E.C. Roach came to Thomasville to serve as pastor of Southside and Oak 
Hill Baptist Churches. Worship grew steadily and by 1928 has a membership of 101. 
Rev. L.A. Connell came in 1929 to serve as pastor. 

In 1930 Southside acquired another new pastor. Rev. R.L West. Once again, services 
were held every Sunday. This year Mrs. R.L. West organized the Woman's Missionary 
Society. A pastorium was also purchased this year. 

In 1937 Rev. W.C. Darnell came to Southside. Church membership was 121 and Sunday 
School enrollment was 233. 

In 1939 Rev. N.F. Britt accepted the duties as pastor of Southside. Rev. S.G. Snider 
came in 1941 as pastor. 

In 1943 the church purchased a house next to the church to serve as pastorium. Rev. 
Thomas B. Flowe came this year to Southside as pastor. 

Rev. S.D. Baker accepted a call to Southside in 1947. The church continued to grow 
and by 1952 work was started on the new church building. The brick church was soon 
completed with only an indebtedness of $22,000.00. This was extinguished by 1956. 

In 1962 work was started on a three story construction to join the church building. Also 
this year the old church property and pastorium were exchanged for a six-room brick 
house at 729 Rosedale Drive to be used as the new pastorium. 

Rev. W.A. Knight came to Southside in 1964. Three years later he resigned and Dr. R.C. 
Foster served as supply pastor. 

In 1967 Rev. E.W. Clapp began his ministry here. Church membership has grown to 458 
and 238 enrolled in Sunday School. 

Rev. Tommy Wagner began his ministry in December 1982. Through his ministry the 
church has adopted a Constitution and Bylaws. For the first time the church has adopted 
a budget. Southside has grown with many new improvements. Most of all it has grown 
with membership and SPIRIT. 

The church membership has completed a study of deaconship, calling a pastor, and 
the church covenant. A Historical committee has been appointed and is working very 
hard to secure more information about the history of the church. Future plans include 
writing a book on the committee's findings that will be made available to each member. 

The histories of three host churches will be printed in the minutes of Liberty Baptist 
Association and will also be sent to the Baptist Historical Collection to become a part of 
the permanent records there. Mr. John Woodard, Director of the Historical Collection, 
urges all churches to place their records on microfilm, which is a free service offered by 
this department. Mr. Woodard may be contacted at:

PREAMBLE 

We, the churches of the Liberty Baptist Association, unite ourselves according to 
the plan and for the purpose and work of the New Testament churches in our world, 
and to this end to cooperate to the fullest extent possible with the Baptist State Con- 
vention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention, according to the fol- 
lowing Articles: 

ARTICLE I — NAME 
The name of this body shall be the Liberty Baptist Association. 

ARTICLE II — MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1. The membership shall be composed of the Baptist churches now hold-

Standing Resolutions 

Ordination of New Mm/sfers 

It is strongly recommended as the position of this Association: 

1. That, when a church desires to put forth a candidate for examination and ap- 
proval for ordination to the full work of the Gospel Ministry, an Examining Council 
composed of a committee of five elected by the Association in annual meeting, plus 
the pastors and one layman from each cooperating church in the fellowship of the 
Liberty Baptist Association, be summoned by written invitation of at least one week 
In advance from the church nominating the candidate. 

2. That the examination of the candidate be conducted by the Examining Council 
and that a report of its findings be given to the nominating church. If the report is fav- 
orable the nominating church will set the date of ordination and notify the member 
churches. 

3. That we ordain only those who have received a definite call to become a pastor, 
an associate pastor, or an educational director of a Baptist church on regular stand- 
ing in the Association or those who have felt a call to the mission field, the chaplain- 
cy of our armed forces or the chaplaincy of a public institution whose church shall 
have requested in writing his ordination before the call of the ordaining council shall 
be approved. 

Policies for the Establisfiment of l\/lissions 

1. Definite sponsorship by an established church. 

2. Sponsoring church to work in cooperation with Associational Missions Commit- 
tee. 

3. Sponsoring church to retain control of Mission until such time as the church 
and the Associational Missions Committee agree that the Mission is self-sufficient. 

4. Sponsoring church to call Mission pastor and select all workers in the Mission. 

5. Sponsoring church to encourage Mission from the beginning to give a definite 
percentage of the offering plate dollar through the Cooperative Program and Associ- 
ational Missions. 

6. Sponsoring church should insist upon a full and well-defined program of South- 
ern Baptist Work in the Mission, using the Southern Baptist literature. 

7. Sponsoring church to work with the Associational Missions Committee in prop- 
erly locating the Mission. 

8. Sponsoring church to work with the Mission in planning of new buildings, using 
the services of the Church Planning Department of the Baptist State Convention.

Organization and Admission of New Cliurches 

Recognizing the right of the Association to determine its own membership and be- 
ing aware of the importance of the manner in which the churches are organized, we 
recommend that any group of individuals desiring to organize themselves into a new 
church with the purpose of seeking recognition of and fellowship and cooperation 
with the Association be requested to meet the following standards: 

1. Notice shall be given to the Moderator of the desire to organize a church before 
any such organization takes place. The Moderator will then ask the Missions Com- 
mittee to study and pass upon the need for and the practicability of such an organi- 
zation. 

2. That the location of said church shall be sufficiently removed so as not to in- 
terfere with the work or encroach upon the territory of the churches already affiliated 
with the Association. This will be determined by the Missions Committee. 

3. Upon being approved by the Missions Committee the group will then request 
this committee to examine the church covenant, articles of faith, and constitution (if 
a constitution has been adopted) of the proposed church. Should the committee ap- 
prove the covenant, articles of faith, and constitution, the group will proceed at a 
later date to be constituted into a Baptist church of the same faith and order.

Proceedings 

One Hundred Fifty-seventh Annual Session 
Liberty Baptist Association 

TUESDAY AFTERNOON - SEPTEMBER 26 
REEDS BAPTIST CHURCH 
Lexington, North Carolina 

"Here's Hope: Jesus Cares For You" was the theme for the 157th annual session of 
the Liberty Baptist Association. 

Moderator, Morris Hollifleld, called the opening session to order. With revival as our 
emphasis Rodney Douglas chose "Revive Us Again" and "There's Power in the Blood" 
for congregational hymns. Pianist was Rita Koontz and organist was Ava Charles. 

We were led in a time of devotion by Osbert and Margaret James. 

The 157th session was constituted and the program was accepted as order of business. 
Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Lamar Moore, nominated Mrs. Judy Wood, Clerk. 
The nomination was seconded and carried. 

Rev. Leonard Rollins Introduced and recognized the new pastors and full-time staff 
members of our churches: Randy Stewart, Pastor, Liberty; Dennis Tofano, Pastor, Welcome, 
First; Keith Brown, Minister of Music and Education, Welcome, First; Lewis Jolly, Pastor, 
Community; Gary Myers, Pastor, Oak Hill Memorial; Vern Peterson, Pastor, Denton, First; 
Mike Motley, Pastor, Summervllle; Wayne Blevlns, Pastor, Greenwood; Debbie Graham, 
Youth Director, Cedar Lodge; Joe Walters, Minister of Music and Youth, Liberty; Dale Cain, 
Minister of Music, Mills Home; David Cook, Associate Minister, Reeds; Hunter Hensley, 
Minister of Music, Denton, First; and Bob Watson, Youth Minister, Carolina Memorial. 

Reports were given from: Barbara Foster, Missions Committee; Treasurer, Charles Pen- 
ninger; Finance Committee, Brooks Hunt; Executive Committee, Judy Wood. (A copy of 
each report follows.) 

Rodney led in the singing of "Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus" and Charles Penley 
focused on the Here's Hope Simultaneous Revivals scheduled for April 1990. 
Rev. John Pace welcomed messengers and visitors to Reeds Baptist Church. 
In new business: 

1. Lamar Moore asked that a long-range planning committee be appointed by the 
Moderator and presented to the Executive Committee in November. Areas of 
attention would be: 

-21- 



a. help plan and see Association through a change of administration. 

b. for the upgrading of the Associational office. 

c. work with the State Convention Missions Department to establish new work. 

d. update constitution and bylaws. 

2. In appreciation of Pastor Clovis Martinoff's visit with us in our 157th annual ses- 
sion, and at the request of our pastors in their meeting September 25, Roy Cantrell 
placed a motion before this body. "I move that our churches be challenged to make 
up and contribute enough money to purchase adequate land to construct a church 
within the area of our commitment in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is thought to be $8,000. 
The money would be from our churches designated for thrs special project and not 
from our Associational treasury. It would be sent through our Association and the 
proper channels of our Foreign Mission Board. The first of this money will be taken 
tonight at the conclusion of the Reverend Martinoff's message. We would hope for 
this amount to be raised by the middle of November." Motion carried. 

3. Betty Bradshaw gave information of recent storm damage to Camp Mundo Vista. 
Manpower is needed to clean up fallen trees. It was suggested that churches may 
take all the wood they want and use it for a needy family or any other reason. 

4. On behalf of Charles Dickens, Chairman of the Place and Preacher Committee, 
Steve Jarvis, Grover Beck, Breece Waddell, and Geneva Snider, Leonard presented

Al Martin on the organ. 

After the evening meal Rodney Douglas led in the congregational singing of "Crown Him 
With Many Crowns" and "O Worship the King."

from the evening session. Vice-Moderator, Doug Huff, welcomed messengers and visitors 
to the evening session. 

Harry Sherwood of Wingate College gave great praise for Osbert and Margaret James 
for their positive influence on the campus and their excellent academic record. Osbert and 
Margaret led in a time of worship. 

The 150 year history of Reeds Baptist Church was read by Pastor John Pace. 

Gaylin Huff expressed appreciation for prayers and support of the Campus Ministry at 
Davidson County Community College. The B.S.U. - Alpha Omega - is very active on the 
campus of D.C.C.C. 

Associational Senior Adult Director, Evelyn Kepley, reported on the fastest growing age 
group in our churches - Senior Adults. Because of the quality of medical care, life is better, 
and the church plays an important part in the ministry provided and challenges presented 
to Senior Adults. Churches can offer not only opportunities to learn but opportunities to serve. 

Leonard gave a brief update on the Brazil partnership. 

After congregational singing of "At The Cross," David Cook and the Reeds Worship Choir 
led in a time of special music. 

The evening worship time was unusual and exciting. Pastor Clovis Martinoff of Rio Preto, 
Brazil, delivered the message. With the help of an interpreter, (retired missionary, John Poe 
from Brazil) Martinoff explained of his love for his people in the country of Brazil and their 
desperate need of Jesus Christ. He challenged us to give our witness in person. Not just 
to send our dollars but to go and tell others of the good news of Jesus Christ. 

The meeting was adjourned. 

Registrars reported 225 messengers and 77 visitors for a total attendance of 305.

MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

Barbara Foster explained their discussion of the Brazil project. Clovis Martinoff, pastor 
of First Baptist Church, Rio Preto, has sent a copy of his visions and dreams with the 
N.C. /Brazilian Partnership. They were outlined as follows: 

October 1988 - Secure application of Religious Education Building 
November 1988 - Throw the foundation of the R.E. building and Evangelistic 
Crusade 

January 1989 - Build first floor (next door to church at Rio Preto by men of 
that church) 

February 1989 - Make walls/fence at Ana Celia (This project asks for our 
commitment for building materials and construction crews in June of 1989. 
Financial assistance would be a part of this commitment.) 
We need to begin the process long before the money is needed. 
8,000 bricks $ 600 

concrete and iron 4,700 
Total $5,300 
March 1989 - Throw stone base of "Temple" 
April 1989 - Concluded foundation 
May 1989 - Second floor of Religious Education Building 

Finish construction and inaugurate the temple at Ana Celia. 
The Missions Committee expressed favor of the entire project with partnership but to keep 
in our vision budget commitments. The Missions Committee recommended, "that we com- 
mit ourselves to support the building of the church in Ana Celia with $5,300 for building 
materials." After discussion, we voted to send the $5,300. 

We should share this information with churches and ask for commitment of funds collec- 
table after first of the year. They ask for a response by next Executive Committee meeting 
so we can make a decision. 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS: 

Leonard announced dates for the next Brazil trips: June 14, 27, 1989, for a construction 
crew of 15 men and two pastors, some W.M.U. ladies and possible youth. They would pro- 
bably stay an extra two days for rest before returning home. The cost would be approx- 
imately $1 ,500. 

The second trip would be November 8-21, 1989, for 21 laymen and seven pastors. This 
would be for a renewed evangelistic approach and to dedicate the building at Ana Celia.

DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS: 

1 . Re: Treasurer's Report - Receipts to the 1988 State Missions offering were $2,037.86. 
This is less than the two previous years.

3. The $5,300 mailed to the N.C.B.S.C. was forwarded to the F.M.B. with instructions 
as to designation of the money. 

The F.M.B. will hold the money until the last day due to inflation and the materials are 
on their way to the sight and then they will release the money.

who have responded. The official request is for 13 men. The November trip will require 21 
people, including seven pastors. 

5. Forty-two of our 43 churches contributed to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering with 
$146,620.37, an increase of $11,107.75 over 1987. Morris would want me to mention that 
Jersey gave the most followed by Thomasville First, Denton First, Lexington First and Carolina 
Memorial. 

Doug Huff recommended that the Finance Committee consider a study for a Mission 
Volunteer Support Fund. Leonard stated that he would discourage Associational budget 
assistance; that participation in a mission trip would be a sacrificial commitment. The Finance 
Committee is to study the feasibility of financial assistance, what would be the limit of 
assistance and to study options for helping a church by the pairing of churches. Brooks 
Hunt was instructed to proceed with this study. 

The meeting was finally closed.

Judy Wood, Clerk

Report from Brooks Hunt and the Finance Committee. "In keeping with the request of 
the Executive Committee on January 23, 1989, the Finance Committee has explored the 
possibilities for financial assistance, when needed, for mission volunteers through the Brazilian 
partnership. 



-27- 



"We recommend that a special fund be established and that opportunity be given for con- 
tributions to be made to the fund. It is further suggested that upon availability of funds, an 
amount not to exceed 25 percent of the total cost, be awarded. The Finance Committee 
further recommends that the administration and distribution of these funds be made by the 
Missions Committee." - The Finance Committee: Pauline Young, Gary Myers, Charles Pen- 
ninger, Brooks Hunt, Leonard Rollins, DOM, and Morris Hollifield, Moderator. 

Questions were raised as to the recommendation covering only Brazil volunteers. There 
was concern for V.B.S. volunteers and others. Because of Associational commitment to Brazil 
this project is top priority. The recommendation was amended "to include projects authorized 
by the Association." The motion as amended carried. 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

There was a request for Leonard to return to Brazil for a dedication service. The recom- 
mendation was that $2,600 be set aside in the budget for Leonard and Polly to go. If they 
do not go, the money set aside will not be used. 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS: 

Brazil update: 16 volunteers with Gene Smith, leader, and Roy Queen, pastor, will leave

Fifteen attended the Key Leadership Conferences at Ridgecrest. The Associational Key 
Leadership Conferences will be August 21 at Southside Church. 

Doug Huff expressed a conviction that churches will not be aggressive to missions until 
the Association takes the lead. He feels that we should act on faith, and the money will 
come. He reminded us that the Chaplaincy Ministry at the Davidson County Prison needs 
our support. He asked the Executive Committee to look at this ministry. 

The meeting was closed with prayer. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood, Clerk

MISSIONS COMMITTEE: 

October 8 is the deadline for application to go to Brazil on November 15. 

Barbara Foster presented a request from Colonial Baptist Church to come under the 
watchcare of Liberty Association. A summary statement is attached. 

Remarks included that of having confidence in the Missions Committee and trust and 
acceptance of their recommendation. Because the majority of the members of Colonial Baptist 
Church are former members at Southgate Baptist Church in Thomasville, concern was 
expressed for Rev. Royals' and Southgate's reaction.lt was made clear that the decision 
of the Missions Committee and the Executive Committee to accept the application of Co- 
lonial Baptist Church would in no way effect support of Rev. Royals or the Southgate 
congregation. 

Motion was made and carried that we recommend to the Association at the annual meeting 
that Colonial Baptist Church be accepted into the watchcare of Liberty Baptist Association. 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS: 

1. Reviewed the program for the annual meeting. 

2. A schedule for location of the annual meetings for the next 10 years was given. 

3. V.B.S. reports are still needed for 10 churches. 

4. The Nominating Committee has had limited resources this year. Lamar Moore, Chair- 
man, asked for nominees to fill vacancies.' 

The meeting was closed in prayer by Dennis Tofano.

Nancy Curtis, just returning, relayed this message to the W.M.U. Executive Committee: 
To continue on the course set. When these return in June if they request money that we 
do a careful study. We will contact W.M.U. Directors through the W.M.U. Newsletter and

We will encourage churches to commit to the Here's Hope Revivals April 1-8, 1990. 

Barbara expressed a desire to begin a project to help deprived families shop for Christmas.

Migrant Ministries 



Initial visits and contacts were made on June 24, 1989. The meetings were held on July 
1, July 15, July 29, August 12 and August 26, 1989, at Victory Baptist Church. 

The following churches participated with cooked meals and provided fellowship: Cedar 
Lodge Baptist, First Baptist - Thomasville, Jersey Baptist, Victory Baptist and Wallburg. The 
response was good from the churches and it is our goal to involve more churches in the 
Association next year. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes to those groups and 
individuals who have helped make this ministry possible. Rev. Carlos Oliveros from Union 
Grove Baptist Church in Kernersville preached in Spanish and Carlos Cascantes from Milliard 
Baptist Church in High Point came to lead in the singing. These services in Spanish were 
beautiful! 

Attendance varies greatly at each meeting since it depends on whether or not they have 
to work late on Saturday evenings. The largest attendance was approximately 18, counting 
migrants and volunteers from Jersey Church. 

We're finding that after three years of working with the Hispanics, friendships and trust 
are being formed because many of the same seasonal farm workers return to our area year 
after year to harvest tobacco and other crops. 

We ask for your continued prayers for this ministry. 

Partners In Christ, 
Brenda Emmons 



Director of Missions Report 

The 1988-89 Associational year will be remembered as the second year of the Brazil Part- 
nership. We had a total of 25 people to go from our Association to Rio Preto, and four more 
will be leaving on November 15. Clovis Martinoff has been with us this week and is the keynote 
speaker for our Associational meeting tonight at Reeds Creek Baptist Church. The fields 
are white unto harvest, and we shall continue to call for volunteers. 

In the kind of ministry that is carried out on a regular basis, I have been in 29 of the 43 
churches for at least one meeting during the calendar year. In addition to regular preaching 
services, I taught the book of John at Churchland, Reeds, and Liberty. I taught the Home 
Mission Study ten times: at Welcome, First, Holloways, New Friendship, Coggins Memorial, 
Rich Fork, Reeds, Liberty, Carolina Memorial, Churchland, and Balfour Baptist Church in 
the Randolph Association. I shared the September 29-October 12 Brazil experience at 
Currytown, Tyro, Cedar Lodge, Oakhurst, Faith, Southgate, Community, Coggins Memorial, 
Holloways, Associational G.A. Rally, Executive Committee of State Youth Ministers at 
Caraway, and the men at Mt. Tabor United Church of Christ. 

I spoke to the Central Carolina Civitan Club at Lexington Y.M.C.A., Senior Citizens (75 
and up) at Churchland, Acteens at Park Place, Baptist Women in associational meeting 
at Churchland, 20th Anniversary Celebration at Center Hill for Lamar Moore, Homecoming 
at First Baptist, Spindale, North Carolina, Baptist Women at Lexington, First, Thanksgiving 
service at Park Place, Ground-breaking service at Rich Fork, Baptist Men and R.A. boys 
at Welcome, First, and service in which Colonial Baptist Church was constituted. I also 
conducted eight worship services at Churchland after the pastor had surgery. 

I have participated in the following special events: Dedication of building for homeless 
(Ecumenical Social Ministhes) in Lexington, Open House at the Davidson Correctional Center, 
Open House for Davidson County Domestic Violence Services, Inc., Open House at The 
Life Center of Davidson County, "Clergy Day" at Lexington Y.M.C.A., and two meetings 
of the Crescent Commission at Caraway. 

I was involved in a regional evangelism conference at Caraway, Triad Missions Fellowship 
in Greensboro, Christian Action League at Caraway, Wake Forest Spring Conference, Board 
of Ministers Meeting at Campbell University, and the January Bible Study Preparation at 
Wake Forest University. I also attended the Baptist State Convention in Fayetteville, 
Evangelism Conference in Greensboro, State V.B.S. Clinic in Albemarle, State Building Con- 
ference at Thomasville, First, Key Leadership Conference at Ridgecrest, Southern Baptist 
Convention in Las Vegas, Directors of Missions Conference at Wingate and the National 
Convocation on the Baptist Association at Ridgecrest. 



-31- 



I have given assistance to the Pastor Search Conrimittee at Liberty, Greenwood, Sum- 
merville, Trinity, Coggins Mennorial, and Lexington, First. I also helped the "Here's Hope" 
Steering Committee, the Place and Preacher Committee, Program Committee, Finance Com- 
mittee, and Nominating Committee. I assisted in five funeral services and attended funeral 
services in Wallburg and Denton. 

We are involved in Migrant Missions, Prison Ministry, Brazil Partnership, D.C.C.C. 
Campus Ministry, and we remain committed to Osbert and Margaret James as he now enters 
Southeastern Seminary.

Leonard Rollins 



Evangelism Report 

Several years ago in a little pamphlet entitled "We Are Witnesses," Jack Stanton wrote, "In 
this day of tragic need we must do more than invite people to church; we must bring them 
face to face with Christ." 

Bringing individuals "face to face with Christ" is the responsibility of every Christian 
believer. Telling others about the Saviour of men is Evangelism. For the Christian it should 
be as natural as breathing. You see, when Jesus is the most important person in our life 
then we will want to tell others about Him. 

The "Here's Hope" 1990 Simultaneous Revival Emphasis will permit every Christian, every 
church in our denomination, the opportunity to share the hope we have through Christ. Your 
Evangelism Committee, along with several other leaders in our association, is presently 
serving as the Here's Hope Steering Committee. Our purpose is to provide the churches 
in the Liberty Association an opportunity to become informed of and involved in the 1990 
Simultaneous Revivals. Many of you can remember the Simultaneous Revival emphasis 
in 1986 and experienced the joy of seeing people come to Christ through this kind of 
cooperative spirit. 

Our goal is to see every church in our Association become involved. Therefore, the Steering 
Committee has met on four different occasions this year to prayerfully plan a number of 
Associational events. We encourage you to take advantage of these events as they become 
available. We covet your prayers as a committee as we continue to assist the churches in 
our association in bringing the unsaved face to face with Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Penley, Chairman 

Student Ministry Report 

I am thankful to have the opportunity to minister in your behalf at Davidson County Com- 
munity College. The Student Ministry Committee has been an enjoyable group with which 
to work. This year we helped to plan and sponsor the Jeremiah People performance at Finch 
Auditorium for youth, families, and singles. That night we promoted our second event, a 
Singles Talent Showcase. Seventeen people attended representing seven churches in our 
Association. 

Our committee would like to urge our churches to focus on young single adults and col- 
lege students at least once a year through one of three recognized Southern Baptist Con- 
vention calendared events: "On to College Day" in August, Single Adult Sunday in 
September, and/or Student Day at Christmas. We would like to make ourselves available 
to any of the churches in planning or conducting these events or activities like them. We 
believe young singles need to be reached— and CAN be reached by our churches. 

Another resource we recommend for our churches' use is the Student magazine, which 
last October began to carry the Life and Work weekly Sunday School lessons in its monthly 
format. This is a valuable piece for students at home and can also be a reminder of one's 
home church and Christian foundation when mailed to students at their college residences.

Our on-campus fellowship, known as Alpha Omega, was enthusiastic this year. The group 
participated in ministry projects to boarding house residents, and men in a homeless shelter. 
One young woman, Tommie Stoltz, was given a semester internship position with the 
Thomasville Area Habitat for Humanity. She worked with Habitat ten hours a week and was 
sponsored with a scholarship through the Youth and Campus Ministry Division of the 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. 



We began the year with the question, "What's New in W.M.U.?". Effective October 1988, 
all age-level manuals were changed, and we reviewed the new manuals as we met for leader- 
ship training in August 1988. 

An inspirational Prayer Retreat led by Polly Rollins was held at Caraway in November. 
Kim Dickey, worker with Cooperative Services International, Foreign Mission Board, S.B.C., 
provided insightful messages about China. Margaret and Osbert James, ministerial student 
and wife from Grenada, led us in devotions. 

Our Associational W.M.U. Council met quarterly. Learning and motivational opportunities 
were provided by each age-level Director for the benefit of local W.M.U. leaders, as well 
as for group members from the churches. Again this year, we were proud as some members 
of our council volunteered to serve as aides on the mission field. 

A quarterly newsletter was sent to each local W.M.U. Director and others in an effort 
to improve communications. 

It was a special year for Acteens in the Association. About 60 Acteens and their leaders 
travelled together to the National Acteens Convention in San Antonio, Texas in July. This 
was a memorable experience. 

We have been gratified to respond to interest expressed in starting new church W.M.U. 
organizations. These efforts are supported by our prayers and outstretched hands.

History of Reeds Baptist Church - 1976-1989 

This segment of our history follows the histohcal sketch given in the minutes of the 
Liberty Baptist Association in 1976. 

Reeds Baptist Church is this year, 1989, celebrating its 150th Anniversary as an 
organized and functioning Baptist church. As the previous historical segment will show, we 
have records of services being held here for at least 218 years, but the actual organization 
date for what was then known as Reeds Meetinghouse or Reeds X Roads Baptist Church 
is October 12, 1839. Thus, in about two weeks we will have a celebration to commemorate 
our 150th year. All of our friends are invited to participate with us in the various activities 
that are being planned for this very significant occasion. 

One of the features of this celebration will be a printed history of Reeds Church which 
will be available prior to our anniversary date. It will be some 235 pages, 8V2 x 1 1 size, and 
will include more than 100 photographs. We are very proud to have a complete history to 
help as we celebrate our anniversary. 

Significant events and happenings since 1976 are as follows: 

In 1977 the church adopted a constitution and bylaws, and these are to be used as a 
basis to incorporate Reeds Baptist Church as a non-profit corporation under the laws of 
the state of North Carolina. 

In May of 1977 Tommy Andrew, a student at Wake Forest University, was called as part- 
time Music Director. 

In August 1977 the church implemented the Deacon Family Ministry Plan. 

During the year 1977 the heating system in the church building was replaced. 

In September 1978 the church voted to send out a newsletter for S.B.C. missionaries, 
Luther and Mary Frances Morphis, at church expense. 

In April 1979 Ed Holmes was elected as part-time church Music Director to replace 
Tommy Andrew who had resigned. 

January 1980 Scott Forrest was licensed to the gospel ministry by the church and was 
recommended to Southern Baptist Seminary as a ministerial student. In July 1982 the church 
will ordain Rev. Forrest. 

In 1980-1981 the church established the "Clara Johnson Huff Foreign Mission Fund" 
with the proceeds of the sale of the Huff farm on the Yadkin River which had been willed 
to the church. The N.C. Baptist Foundation, using the $79,400.00 sale price of the farm, 
established the trust fund with the proceeds to go yearly to the Lottie Moon Christmas 
Offering for Foreign Missions. 



-38- 



Since the establishing of this trust, more than $38,000.00 in income from the trust has 
been given to the Lottie Moon offering. 

In 1982 the church applied to the N.C. Baptist State Convention for a Summer Youth 
Worker. For the first two summers C.F. McDowell from Wingate College served us, fol- 
lowed by Miss Alisa Matthews of Gardner-Webb, Miss Bette Hardin of Mars Hill, Miss Cin- 
dy Strickland of Gardner-Webb, Miss Karen Roberts of Wingate and Miss Amy Smith of 
Appalachian. This has been a very beneficial program for our church. 

In May 1983 Mrs. Judy Wood, our church secretary of about 10 years, resigned to take 
full-time employment with First Baptist Church, Lexington. Mrs. John Pace was elected to 
fill the position. 

In 1 984 the church approved a plan to cover just as much as possible of the outside wood- 
work on the church building with vinyl clad aluminum to save on painting costs. 

Also in 1984 the church approved and supported Deacon Gene Smith as a short term 
mission volunteer to Togo, West Africa, and made a contribution to Director of Missions 
Leonard Rollins for his trip to Togo. 

In 1 985 our church contributed to and participated in the John Wesley White Evangelistic 
Crusade in Northern Davidson County. 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation informed the church of the Randall and Callie Sue 
Michael Scholarship trust fund to be used as scholarship for church vocation volunteers 
from Davidson County. 

In June 1985 C.F. McDowell, Jr. was ordained by our church to the gospel ministry. 

In October 1985 the church approved placing Bibles in all of the pew racks in our church 
auditorium. Also approved purchase of a new church activity bus. 

In 1987 several significant actions were taken. A committee was appointed to begin 
planning and carrying out our 1 50th Anniversary celebration in October 1 989. Voted to sign 
the agreement with the S.B.C. Annuity Board to enroll our ministers in the Expanded 
Annuity Plan. Purchased an adjoining lot for future development. Authorized the Church 
Sound Committee to proceed to install a completely new sound system for the auditorium. 

The year 1988 was a very busy and productive year for the church. Voted to build a new 
equipment shed at the church. Voted to completely remodel all the church bathrooms. 
Approved sending Mrs. Judy Wood on a V.B.S. Missions trip to Antiqua. Paid $500.00 on 
mission trip to Brazil for a neighboring pastor. 

The year 1989, our anniversary year, has focused our thinking on our past and our 
present and taking a look toward the future. Some of the activities and events thus far have 
been the publishing of an anniversary church pictoral directory and proceedings with the 
publication of a history of Reeds Baptist Church, providing historical displays of pictures 
and materials, having a display of old cars and methods of transportation and numerous 
printings in our church bulletin and church newsletter. As a part of this we are in the 
process of painting the Inside of the church building and doing other repairs. 

A committee has been appointed to research the feasibility of purchasing and using a 
computer in the church office. The church paid the cost of three people from our church 
going on the mission trip to Brazil. These were Gene and Jo Carroll Smith and Forrest Michael. 

The most recent action by the church has been to extend a call to Rev. David Cook of 
Thomasville to serve as Associate Minister of Youth and Music. He will begin his service 
with us in mid-August. 

We continue to look fonward to our future as the people of God here in Reeds community, 
and we rejoice as we consider what God has accomplished in the past. 

Rev. John Pace was most helpful in writing this brief history, to whom we are indebted. 

Respectfully submitted,

Reeds Baptist Church 

150th Anniversary Year 
1 839 - 1 989 

This is a most significant year in the life of Reeds Baptist Church as we celebrate our 
150th Anniversary of being an organized church in Reeds X Roads community. We want 
the world to know that we are proud of "what God has wrought" through the years using 
this plot of ground, the six buildings that have served as the meeting place, and the thousands 
of people who have been members of this congregation over the years. 

Let me walk you through what actually is the past 218 years of history at Reeds, for 
services were being held here for 68 years before our organization date. 

The year - 

1 771 - Records show that the Community of Reeds has a schoolhouse and a teacher 
named Bauman. Not having a preacher in the community, Mr. Bauman has been 
set apart by the people as their exhorter. 

1 795 - A local landowner named George Reed deeds two acres of property to the "con- 
gregation at Reeds Meeting House" "whereon a new meeting house stands." 
The congregation is an "arm" or mission of the Jersey Settlement Church and 
this relationship will continue until October 12, 1839. 

1834 - Jersey Church grants permission to Reeds to "hold Church meeting and to 
receive members," but they were still members at Jersey. 

1839 - On October 12, 1839, Reeds X Roads Church is organized into a functioning 

church with 25 members - 15 were women and 10 were men. In three months 
there were 39 members. Elder Josiah Wiseman of Jersey Church and Elder 
Barton Roby from Fork Church were the organizing presbytery. 

1840 - Reeds X Roads is accepted for membership in the Liberty Baptist Association 

which had been organized eights years earlier. 
1843 - Records show that the church adopts Articles of Faith and a covenant. These 

documents are a part of our church record. 
1852 - Reeds X Roads is listed in the Associational Minutes as the only church with 

a Sunday School with "upwards of 40 Scholars." 
1854 - Records show 64 church members - 62 white and two colored. This year the 

church agrees to "purchase a Bible and a Hymn Book." 
1871 - A new church building is constructed. 

1 892 - The Reeds Academy, located just west of this building, is organized and serves 
as the community school until 1921 . This school was owned and controlled by 
the church. 

1907 - A new building is built and is dedicated in 1910. This would be the building just 
to the east of this building which some of you remember. 

1910 - We find the first mention of W.M.U. work here at Reeds. 

1 922 - A parsonage was built, just south of the crossroads on Highway 1 50. The house 
is still there and occupied - also, S.S. rooms are added to the church. Up until 
this time the church has had one-fourth time preaching service, most of the time 
on the second Saturday and Sunday of the month. 

1924- During the ministry of Rev. W.L. Barrs, the church goes to one-half time 
preaching. 

1945 - Rev. N.C. Teague becomes the first full-time pastor of the church. 

1951 - A contract is signed for construction of a new building. This building where you 

worship today was dedicated in December 1958. 
1966 - The new parsonage was constructed and dedicated under the leadership of Rev. 

Bennie Crawford. 

1970 - A part-time, paid Secretary is employed. 

1971 - A part-time, paid Music Ministry is begun. 
1975 - A church Activity Bus was purchased. 

1981 - The Clara Johnson Huff trust fund for the Lottie Moon Christmas offering was 

established. Since that time about $40,000 has gone to Foreign Missions from 
this fund. 

1982 - The church begins to participate in the Summer Youth Ministry Program through 

the N.C. Baptist State Convention. 
1989 - Rev. David A. Cook is called as full-time Minister of Youth and Music. 

-40- 



So, since 1771, there have been six buildings to serve as houses of worship, and one 
building which served as a school. 

Thirty-nine men have served as pastor or elected supply pastor for this congregation. Six 
of these are still living, the oldest being Dr. Ben Ingram who served here from 1916-1919. 

Since 1839, 10 men have been ordained to the gospel ministry by this church and four 
of them still are active in some phase of the ministry. One of these. Rev. Luther Morphis, 
has served as a Missionary with our S.B.C. Foreign Mission Board. 

Ninety-two men can be documented as serving as ordained deacons since 1839. 

This church has contributed more than one-half million dollars to the Cooperative Pro- 
gram since 1960. 

As a part of our anniversary celebration, our church has carried out many activities relating 
to our history. These things I think are especially significant. 

One, we have published a Church Anniversary Picture Directory, marking this year in our 
history with names and pictures as information. 

Secondly, a printed history has been completed and will be available for purchase by the 
time of our anniversary date. It will be 8V2 x 1 1 overall size, with approximately 235 pages, 
with more than 100 pictures. We have ordered 1,500 copies and it is on sale for $18.00. 

Then our special weekend of activities on October 14 and 15, when there will be displays, 
historical reinactments and good fellowship. You are invited to come and share with us in 
our time of celebration. 

Thank you, 

' John Pace, Pastor 



History of Smith Grove Baptist Church - 1908-1989 

Smith Grove Baptist Church was organized on October 26, 1908, under the direction and 
guidance of Rev. S.D. Swaim. The organizational meeting took place in the old Beck School 
House. Pine Meeting House, which conducted services at Piney Baptist Church (now known 
as Churchland Baptist Church), granted letters of dismissal to 45 members for the purpose 
of forming this new congregation. They are as follows: Cora Beck, Grace M. Beck, J.C. 
Beck, Margaret Beck, R.H. Beck, Sarah Beck, J.B. Brewer, Lula Brewer, F.B. Clement, G.A. 
Clement, Maggie B. Clement, Margaret R. Clement, Charles Earnhart, Girtha Earnhart, L.A. 
Earnhart, Margaret L. Earnhart, Lula Gobble, Cora B. Grubb, Docia Grubb, H.W. Grubb, 
J.H. Grubb, J.R. Grubb, Thirt Grubb, Mollie H. Koonts, Clara Young Lomax, G.C. Orell, 
Minnie Orrell, Alice Clement Parks, Sallie Green Robertson, C.B. Simerson, Nannie E. Simer- 
son, Sarah E. Simerson, S.R. Simerson, Mollie Smith, W.H. Smith, J.S. Styers, Lena Styers, 
A. A. Young, Edna Young, Henry Young, J.S. Young, Mae Young, Minnie Young, R.L. Young 
and W.A. Young. 

The original tract of land, consisting of two acres, was donated by W.H. and Mollie Smith 
and R.H. and Sarah Beck in 1909. The first pastor was called that year with worship ser- 
vices conducted once a month in the Beck School House. Later in 1909 the first church 
building was erected, a one-room structure with a seating capacity of 225 under the super- 
vision of J.H. Grubb. The Building Committee consisted of W.H. Smith, R.L. Young and 
C.B. Simerson. Upon its completion the church adopted its present name in honor of W.H. 
Smith, known in the community as Uncle Henry Smith. 

The Liberty Baptist Association accepted Smith Grove into its organization on July 23, 
1910. The first messengers were A. A. Young, W.H. Smith, J.B. Brewer and G.C. Orrell. 

In 1926 the sanctuary was renovated, a choir loft added, the first two Sunday School rooms 
were completed, the church was underpinned, and a new roof was installed. During the 
time of World War II the church building was insured, electric lights were put in, new pews 
and pulpit furniture were added, five more classrooms were completed and the budget system 
was first adopted. In 1945 the church purchased one acre of land from J.H. Grubb and W.H. 
Smith donated his third tract of land to the church. On this property the first church par- 
sonage was built. 

A building fund was started in 1 953 in order to finance a new church building. The ground- 
breaking service was conducted on August 11, 1957. G.A. Clement, the oldest charter 
member living at the time, had the honor of shoveling the first dirt. The new brick church 
was first used for services on April 6, 1958. It had a seating capacity of 350 and included 



-41- 



1 3 classrooms, a pastor's study, a baptistry, a kitchen, a furnace room, an assembly room, 
and indoor plumbing. The dedication service and the laying of the cornerstone was held 
on August 24, 1958. The stained-glass windows were all donated in memory of deceased 
church members. 

In 1967 the church entered into an agreement with Gray and Isabel Smith and their son, 
Truett Smith, for a trade of land involving 35-40 acres, with approximately 700 feet of 
frontage, running parallel to the church property. This site was selected as the location for 
the new parsonage. Paul Weaver, who had served as architect for the church ten years 
earlier, again acted in this capacity for this project. The parsonage was first inhabited on 
July 15, 1968, and later dedicated on March 2, 1969. A note-burning ceremony occurred 
on June 18, 1972. 

During this period of our church history Bradford Simerson donated much time in making 
registers, offering plates, desks, tables, cabinets and other items for the church. Wayne 
Ludwig also donated his services in carpeting, both the church and parsonage. In 1971 the 
first church constitution was adopted. In 1974 a new central air-conditioning unit was 
purchased, new choir robes were added, and a public address system was installed. 

In the fall of 1976 Smith Grove joined with other county churches to participate in the 
Davidson County Crusade for Christ. In 1980 a church library was begun under the leader- 
ship of Mrs. Jeanne Hanes and in 1982 a Sharp copier was purchased. 

Our current pastor, Rev. E. Mark Blair, began his ministry at the church on January 29, 
1984. During each year of his service to our church historic events have taken .place. In 
1 984 a handicap ramp to the church's main entrance was constructed and the first pictorial 
directory was printed. In 1985 the church constitution was revised and updated, a softball 
field with backstop and bleachers was completed, and the first Baptist Men's group was 
organized. 

In 1986 a T.V. monitor and V.C.R. were purchased for the purpose of adding a videotape 
library. A Senior Adults Fellowship also began that year, conducting monthly meetings. The 
current enrollment now stands at 30. 

In 1987 a new fellowship building was completed at a cost of $152,000. The dedication 
service was held on October 18, 1987. A children's playground, located beside the ballfield, 
was also built, the labor being provided by the Baptist Men. Also, the sanctuary pews were 
upholstered and a major landscaping project on the church grounds was completed that 
same year. 

In 1988 the church started a bus fund in order to purchase a new bus. The fund currently 
has approximately $25,000. New choir robes were purchased, two paved walkways were 
added to the cemetery, the church library was relocated and enlarged, a sound system costing 
$6,000 was installed, and a puppet ministry was started in 1988 as well. 

In the present year of 1989 the pastor's study has been refurnished and a paved driveway 
has been added to the cemetery. Church membership stands at 352, with a Sunday School

PREAMBLE 

We, the churches of the Liberty Baptist Association, unite ourselves according to 
the plan and for the purpose and work of the New Testament churches in our world, 
and to this end to cooperate to the fullest extent possible with the Baptist State Con- 
vention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention, according to the fol-

ing membership and any other Baptist churches which may be received into the As- 
sociation according to the subsequent provisions of this Constitution. 

Section 2. The Association shall be sole judge of its membership and may receive 
churches or reject churches according to its Constitution and Bylaws. Member 
churches may also withdraw at their pleasure. Any church in the Association which 
fails to cooperate with the Association for a period of two consecutive years shall be 
contacted by a committee appointed by the Association, to ascertain the wishes and 
desires of the church relative to continuance in the Association. 

A cooperating church is one which sends a report to the Annual Session, sends 
messengers to the Annual Session, and contributes to the financial program of the 
Association. 

ARTICLE III - MEETINGS 

Section 1. The Association shall meet annually on Tuesday and Wednesday fol- 
lowing the fourth Sunday in September. 

Section 2. Special meetings may be called by the Executive Committee, provided 
sufficient notice is given the member churches to permit them two Sundays between 
the call and the meeting. 

Section 3. In emergencies, any change in the time and/or place of meetings shall 
be determined by the Executive Committee. 

ARTICLE IV — COMPOSITION OF MEETINGS

messenger for each additional hundred members or major fraction above 1,000; all 
ordained ministers of member churches; and the officers of the Association.

They shall be contacted and nominated by the Committee on Nominations (Bylaws 
8, Section 2, (6), which shall consider the duly elected heads of the Associational 
Woman's Missionary Union as the committee's nominees for election as the Asso- 
ciation's Officers also. 

Section 3. Officers shall assume their duties at the close of the Associational

ARTICLE VIII — POWERS AND PRIVILEGES

usefulness of any church or churches. All churches of the Association remain inde- 
pendent and sovereign. Cooperating churches unite here only that they may more ef- 
fectively promote Christ's cause throughout the world. The Association may advise

ing on the churches in any way. (This is not to be interpreted as in conflict with Arti- 
cle II, Section 2.)

Standing Resolutions 

Ordination of New Ministers 

It is strongly recommended as the position of this Association: 

1. That, when a church desires to put forth a candidate for examination and ap- 
proval for ordination to the full work of the Gospel Ministry, an Examining Council 
composed of a committee of five elected by the Association in annual meeting, plus 
the pastors and one layman from each cooperating church in the fellowship of the 
Liberty Baptist Association, be summoned by written invitation of at least one week 
in advance from the church nominating the candidate. 

2. That the examination of the candidate be conducted by the Examining Council 
and that a report of its findings be given to the nominating church. If the report is fav- 
orable the nominating church will set the date of ordination and notify the member 
churches. 

3. That we ordain only those who have received a definite call to become a pastor, 
an associate pastor, or an educational director of a Baptist church on regular stand- 
ing in the Association or those who have felt a call to the mission field, the chaplain- 
cy of our armed forces or the chaplaincy of a public institution whose church shall 
have requested in writing his ordination before the call of the ordaining council shall 
be approved. 

Policies for tfie Establistiment of Missions 

1. Definite sponsorship by an established church. 

2. Sponsoring church to work in cooperation with Associational Missions Commit- 
tee. 

3. Sponsoring church to retain control of Mission until such time as the church 
and the Associational Missions Committee agree that the Mission is self-sufficient. 

4. Sponsoring church to call Mission pastor and select all workers in the Mission. 

5. Sponsoring church to encourage Mission from the beginning to give a definite 
percentage of the offering plate dollar through the Cooperative Program and Associ- 
ational Missions. 

6. Sponsoring church should insist upon a full and well-defined program of South- 
ern Baptist Work in the Mission, using the Southern Baptist literature. 

7. Sponsoring church to work with the Associational Missions Committee in prop- 
erly locating the Mission. 

8. Sponsoring church to work with the Mission in planning of new buildings, using 
the services of the Church Planning Department of the Baptist State Convention.

Organization and Admission of New Cfiurches 

Recognizing the right of the Association to determine its own membership and be- 
ing aware of the importance of the manner in which the churches are organized, we 
recommend that any group of individuals desiring to organize themselves into a new 
church with the purpose of seeking recognition of and fellowship and cooperation 
with the Association be requested to meet the following standards: 

1. Notice shall be given to the Moderator of the desire to organize a church before 
any such organization takes place. The Moderator will then ask the Missions Com- 
mittee to study and pass upon the need for and the practicability of such an organi- 
zation. 

2. That the location of said church shall be sufficiently removed so as not to in- 
terfere with the work or encroach upon the territory of the churches already affiliated 
with the Association. This will be determined by the Missions Committee. 

3. Upon being approved by the Missions Committee the group will then request 
this committee to examine the church covenant, articles of faith, and constitution (if 
a constitution has been adopted) of the proposed church. Should the committee ap- 
prove the covenant, articles of faith, and constitution, the group will proceed at a 
later date to be constituted into a Baptist church of the same faith and order.

One Hundred Fifty-eighth Annual Session 
Liberty Baptist Association 

TUESDAY AFTERNOON - SEPTEMBER 25 
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 
Lexington, North Carolina 

"The Witnessing, Giving Life: Let Us Care For Each Other" was the theme for the 
158th annual session of the Liberty Baptist Association. 

Moderator, Morris Hollifield, called the opening session to order. Rodney Douglas 
led us in the singing of hymns: "Come, Christians, Join to Sing", and "Crown Him 
With Many Crowns." 

Dr. Ray N. Howell, III of Lexington First led in a time of devotion using Psalm 8 as our 
focal passage. 

The 158th session was constituted and the program was accepted as the order of 
business. Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Roy Cantrell nominated Mrs. Judy 
Wood, Clerk. The nomination was seconded and carried. 

Our Director of Missions, Leonard Rollins introduced and recognized the new 
pastors and full-time staff members: Marcus Campbell, Pastor, Victory; Jimmy Lan- 
caster, Associate Minister, Thomasville, First; Ray Howell, Pastor, Lexington, First; 
Steve Hedgecock, Pastor, Mountain View; Jeff Vogler, Pastor, Trinity; Lowell Askins", 
Pastor, Coggins; and Peter Richardson, Interim at High Rock. 

Reports were given from Barbara Foster, Chairman of Missions Committee; 
Treasurer, Charles Penninger; Finance Committee, Brooks Hunt; and Executive Com- 
mittee, Judy Wood. A copy of each report follows proceedings. 

Mark Blair serves as our Stewardship Director. He gave us some background on the 
Witnessing Giving Life Revival emphasis for 1991. Witnessing Giving Life is a five year 
emphasis calling for commitments by Southern Baptist to grow in Christian giving and 
living. This involves a lifestyle response that enables the believer to most effectively 
present Christ to a lost world and to make possible a Bold Mission Thrust quality of 
witnessing to that world. This emphasis on witnessing giving introduces the second 
phase on the Planned Growth in Giving program features. This 1991-1995 commitment 
is sponsored by the Evangelism Department of the Home Mission Board, the Steward- 
ship Commission and the Executive Committee of the SBC. We witnessed Leonard 
Rollins, Charles Penley, Mark Blair and Morris Hollifield signing a commitment from 
Liberty Baptist Association to place emphasis and participate. 

We were formally welcomed to First Baptist Church by Associate Minister, Tommy 
Wilson.

New Business: 



It was a very happy occasion to welcome Colonial Baptist Church. September 26, 
1989 the Association received the Colonial Baptist Church, which was newly con- 
stituted on September 10, 1989. After having been under watchcare of the Association 
for this year sharing reports with our Association and coming today for this purpose 
we received this congregation into full fellowship. 

Barbara Foster, Chairman of Missions Committee, made a motion, "that Colonial 
Baptist Church, which has been under the watchcare of the Missions Committee for 
the last year, be received into the full fellowship of the Liberty Baptist Association." 
The body stood in full approval of the motion. 

Morris welcomed the congregation of Colonial Baptist Church. Words of gratitude 
and thanks were given by pastor, Woodrow Robbins. He asked for prayers as they con- 
tinue to grow and proceed with plans for building a church building. Under the leader- 
ship of the Brotherhood department of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 
they will begin to erect a building on October 22. 

Jimmy Jones, a messenger from Lexington First, asked for churches to be aware of 
their responsibilities to provide retirement for pastors and made a motion that "the 
members of the Liberty Baptist Association go on record being totally and wholly op- 
posed for the Liquor By the Drink" Referendum for Lexington scheduled for October 2. 
The motion was seconded and carried. 

Brenda Emmons gave an enthusiastic report from the summer Migrant Ministry. At- 
tendance ranged from 3-33 for bible study, English literacy courses, fellowship time, 
and preaching. A complete report follows the proceedings. 

The time of the annual sermon began with scriptures from Hebrews 10:19ff read by 
Roy Cantrell. David Cook presented a touching solo of "It's Not in Trying, But in 
Trusting." 

Rev. Brooks Hunt used caring for another as the focal of his message. The scrip- 
tures tell something that greatly benefits the lives of human beings as God created the 
church, the body of Christ, to live in this world and to tell others, by example, of what it 
means to walk with him. The Hebrew writer gives us many challenges. Most important 
to him was the spiritual emphasis in life and what encompasses life and how we ought 
to live and care for each other. 

Dennis Tafono offered a benediction and blessings on the evening meal. 

The evening session began with congregational singing of "When We All Get To 
Heaven" led by Rodney Douglas. 

Ray Howell, with references to the thirteenth chapter of Saint John, then challenged 
us to love and care for one another as God cares for us as our devotional. 

Historian Vernelle Greene of Churchland Church, informed us of the historical 
events of First Baptist Lexington from 1968 until today. She introduced Mildred Mier of 
the Davidson County Historical Association. On behalf of the DC Historical Associa- 
tion each church will receive a complimentary copy of Davidson County Architectural 
Inventory, "Building the Backcountry." The book was several years in the making to 
preserve in pictures, barns, houses, church, and other architecture unique to Davidson 
County. 

Dale Cain, campus minister for DCCC, reported on the success of the Alpha Omega 
student fellowship at our local community college. The students number from 10-20 
and meet weekly for bible study and fellowship. Special programs of interest were car- 
ried out during the year as well as a spring fling as Caswell. The Baptist State Conven-. 
tion commended DCCC for having the best planned program during the three week-end 
events. 

Gene Smith of Reeds Church brought greetings from missionaries Paul & Peggy 
Stoeffer and Pastor Clovis Martinov in Brazil. Gene gave personal testimony to the 
value of our personal witness to the people in Brazil as well as our "elbow grease." 

We were pleasantly surprised to have Osbert & Margaret James visiting with us. 
Osbert gave a word of greeting and thanks for our support and prayers. 

A time of worship began with the singing of "I Will Sing Of My Redeemer". The Sanc- 
tuary Choir of First Baptist Lexington presented special music. The evening worship 
was lead by Judson Lennon, retired missionary to Thailand. Scripture references in- 
cluded Psalm 142:4 and Lamatations 1:12. We were challenged by the question.

"where is the greatest need, will you be willing to give?" 
A benediction was offered by Edward Pigg and the session was closed. 
Registrars reported 242 messengers and 59 visitors for a total of 301 in attendance. 

WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 26 
NORTH LEXINGTON BAPTIST CHURCH, LEXINGTON 

We were welcomed to the closing session by Morris Hollifield. "To God Be The 
Glory" was our hymn. Ray Howell led in devotional of the Witnessing Giving Life, It Is 
Our Sacred Past. With scriptures references in Genesis, we were confronted with the 
sacred task to image (represent) God. 

Robert Floyd welcomed us to North Lexington Church.

Leonard presented the Book of Reports and they were adopted. 

Southgate Church was recognized by the Baptist State Convention Evangelism 
department as one of the top ten churches in youth baptisms. 

A brief memorial service was led by George Williamson. 

Denominational Representatives 

Henry Stokes gave plans for the Wake Forest Divinity School. It is the intent of the 
school to prepare people for ministry in churches and other places of service. We were 
encouraged to lend support through the state convention or directly to Wake Forest. 
Plans call for the school to be in operation in 1992. 

Frances Baker represented the Baptist Retirement Homes of N.C. She expressed 
thanks for prayers and offerings. The offerings go to the benevolent care or assisted 
living residents. 

Charles Penley gave thanks for gifts to the Baptist Childrens Homes. Our prayers 
and offerings provide help and support for hurting children. 

It wouldn't have been a traditional associational meeting without the faithful and 
loyal Carl Hemphill speaking out. This year he spoke for himself and in behelf of Ruby 
in appreciation and thankfulness for the dedication of the annual minutes to them. 

Ray Howell shared a few words from the Biblical Recorder. He encouraged churches 
to use the Recorder as a channel for the church newsletter. 

Charles Penley asked that the Association express to the Davidson County 
Historical Society our appreciation of their generous gifts to our churches. 

Rodney Douglas offered a solo of special music. 

Calvin Knight of the Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem brought our attentions to the 
theme of our annual sessions. "Let Us Care For Each Other", saying that this may be 
new and different by the idea is old and biblical. Using portions of Matthew 28 he ex- 
plained that true followers of Christ have always been involved in caring for one 
another.

We were all impressed and thankful for the sharing of Dr. Tim Pennell. Dr. Pennell is 
a surgeon at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem and Chairman of the Committee of In- 
ternational Health Fairs. His talents as a surgeon are truly used as a tool for God's 
healing powers. 

The session was closed with singing "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow" 
and prayer by John Pace.

Judy Wood, Associational Clerk

with the group (see report). 

The Missions Committee made a motion that Morris Hollifield be named Coor- 
dinator of the World Mission Conference October 20-27, 1992. The motion carried 
unanimously. 
DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS 

Six churches have agreed to sponsor a Gardner-Webb student/preacher for the 
Gardner Webb Minister Education Day, October 7. 

Does the date March 11, 1991 sound familiar? Well that's the date of the Associa- 
tional Sunday School Rally with Kenneth Hemphill of FBC, Norfolk, VA. 

Leonard expressed dissapointment that there would not be a team going to Brazil 
this November. He has high hopes for a large team next June and continuing again in 
October 1991 for revival emphasis in Brazil. 

He still needs VBS reports from four churches. 

Associational Sunday School Training School is planned for October 8-9, 1990. (This, 
is to be a conference in Lexington and in Thomasville for convenience of those par- 
ticipating.) There are three vacancies on the Sunday School Assist Team. 

The Nominating Committee still has a few vacancies, but will have their report com- 
plete (positive thinkers!) and printed for distribution at the annual meeting. 

Roy Queen made a motion that "Liberty Baptist Association adopt a resolution in 
opposition to the Liquor By The Drink referendum." This was seconded by Dennis 
Tafano. Rev. Queen then modified his motion, with approval from Rev. Tafano, to in- 
clude that "the decision be made public in the form of a letter to the editor (in the Lex- 
ington Dispatch)." 

The motion carried.

Judy Wood, Clerk 

NOVEMBER 20, 1989 

In the absence of Barbara Foster, Moderator Morris Hollifield called the meeting to 
order. R.N. Hardin led with prayer. Minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. 

We discussed receiving a report from the Colonial Baptist Church described in Arti- 
cle III, paragraph 2 of the Constitution and Bylaws. Morris is to contact Barbara to see 
if she has received a report. If not the Associational Clerk will send a letter of request 
to Pastor Woodrow Robbins and Treasurer Billy King. The reports will be due 
December 31, March 31, June 30 and prior to the annual meeting next September. 

Charles Penninger brought a request from the Finance Committee concerning 
hospitalization insurance for Osbert & Margaret James. Up to this point a couple from 
the Abbotts Creek Church has paid insurance for Margaret. When they move to 
Southeastern in late December, Osbert's insurance at Wingate will no longer be in ef- 
fect. The premiums will increase to $172.00. Liberty Association has been asked to 
assume responsibility for these payments. The Annuity Board will provide comprehen- 
sive medical insurance for a seminary student and one dependent for $172 a month. 
This will be recommended to the Executive Committee. 

Doris Lopp asked for advice on the way to have a thorough cleaning of the Associa- 
tional office. We felt this was not a responsibility for the WML) to assume, so, R.N. Har- 
din will secure a cleaning lady to clean the office building for approximately $40.00 

The meeting was closed with prayer by Doris Lopp. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood, Clerk 

JANUARY 22, 1990 

Missions Committee was opened with prayer by Doris Lopp. 
Attached is a report from Colonial Baptist Church. 

A report was given that the cleaning crew that cleaned the Associational Office for 
$33.00, working less than an hour, was not satisfactory. 

Upon enrolling at Southeastern, Osbert James will be enrolled in the Annuity Pro- 
gram. W6 will check and see if this also includes one dependent (Margaret James) 

Leonard will recommend to the Executive Committee that $5,000.00 be sent to Brazil 
for the purchase of land. 

There was no further business and the meeting was closed. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood, Clerk 

SEPTEMBER 21, 1990 

Leonard opened the meeting with prayer. 
LEONARD'S BUSINESS: 

— Recommended that Liberty Baptist Association absorb the increase cost of 
health insurance premiums for July and August for Osbert James. The new 
budget will go into effect September 1. 

— As of May 10 Clovis Martinoff had not received the $5,000 that was mailed 
around January 23rd. 

— There has been a request from the Colonial Baptist Church for $50,000 from the 
Baptist State Convention. The BSC must have the endorsement of the Associa- 
tional Missions Committee before approving a loan. Leonard and Morris had 
taken a telephone poll and the committee agreed to send our endorsement. 

' -30- 



— 1991 will be six years since we've had a World Missions Conference. If we are to 
sponsor such an event for the fall of 1991 we need direction for that event. 

— Gardner-Webb ministerial Education day will be October 7. R.N. made a motion 
that we apply for the October 7 date. 

— We will recommend that the 1990 Associational minutes be dedicated to Carl & 
Ruby Hemphill. Morris will recommend to the Executive Committee that we 
move forward. 

— The Associational Youth Rally will be August 11 at Churchland at a cost of 
$1,500. We've got $600 in our budget. Tickets will be sold but the Youth commit- 
tee needs assurance of any money needed to meet the cost. 

As far as I know that was all. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Judy Wood, Clerk 

September 17, 1990 

Missions Committee Chairman, Barbara Foster (Vice-Moderator elect!) called the 
meeting to order. Gene Smith led in prayer. 

Minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. 

Leonard reported on old business: 

1. Clovis Martinov has received the $5,000 we were talking about. He indicated he 
would use it for the purchase of additional property. 

2. Colonial Baptist Church has submitted a quarterly report. On the first day of 
business at the annual meeting, we will report that we find their year of Watchcare in 
good favor, and recommend that they become the 44th cooperating church of the 
Liberty Baptist Association. 

3. Arrangements have been made for the World Missions Conferences, October 
20-27, 1991. It was the unanimous vote of this body to elect Morris Hollifield as Coor- 
dinator for the World Missions Conference. This will be a recommendation to the Ex- 
ecutive Board. 

4. Leonard has a color photo and biographical sketch of Carl and Ruby Hemphill to 
be used in the dedication of our annual minutes. 

5. Six churches have responded to the Gardner-Webb Day scheduled for October 7.

budgeted $600 was spent from the budget to cover expenses. First Baptist Lexington 
hosted the event instead of Churchland. 

NEW BUSINESS

Kenneth Hemphill of FBC, Norfolk, VA.

Liberty Baptist Migrant Ministry 



Matthew 9:37 & 38 "Then said (Jesus) unto his disciples, The harvest is truly 
plenteous, but the labourers are few: Pray ye therefore the Lord of the har- 
vest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest." 

Visitation teams were sent out to canvas the area and invite all of the migrants we 
could locate on the Old Greensboro Road area, Old 109 (Ledford area) and Abbotts 
Creek Church area in June. On July 8, the first meeting was held under the shelter at 
Abbotts Creek Baptist Church. There were approximately 40 in attendance. Atten- 
dance then varied from 3 to 33 with the second largest crowd coming to see the 
"JESUS" film on August 19, 1990. The ministry expanded this year with English 
Literacy, Bible Study and films. On September 2, after Rev. Carlos Oliveros preached, 
three men made professions of faith in Jesus Christ. Meetings were held each Sunday 
afternoon from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. and will go through the end of September 1990. 

Appreciation goes to the Liberty Baptist Association for the support and participa- 
tion given to help the summer migrant ministry run smoothly. The following churches 
came to bring food, volunteers to work with children or play volleyball if 
needed: Carolina Memorial, Colonial, Liberty, Southside, Summerville, Thomasville 
First, Tyro, Wallburg & Welcome First Baptist Church. We hope that your hearts were 
stirred as you witnessed the spiritual needs of these precious people. You shared a 
part in this joint effort of planting the seed, watering, or reaping the harv est - God has 
given the increase and we praise Him for all that we have seen this past summer. 

A special word of thanks goes to the team who helped plan, assist, teach English 
Literacy, Bible Study or preached. These included assistants, Doris Yates, Ben Rowe, 
who promoted this effort to the churches, Eric Thompson, a seminary student who 
speaks fluent Spanish and taught the English Literacy course, Adan from Union Grove 
Baptist Church who taught Bible Study and led in singing; Tim Garner for photography. 
Rev. LaMar Moore and Ramiro Villanovis for preaching and interpreting, Rev. Roy Can- 
trell, Abbotts Creek Church. Those participating on a regular basis were Allene Palmer, 
Ann Joyce, & Evva Spurgeon. This mission endeavor is truly a partnership and all who 
had any part is appreciated.

Director of Missions Report 

The 1989-1990 associational year will be remembered for the "Here's Hope" revivals 
and the third year of the Brazil Partnership. Thirty-two of our churches participated in 
the revivals, and a total of twenty-one people from our association made the trip to Rio 
Preto, Brazil. The evangelistic thrust for the Brazil Partnership is planned for 1991, and 
we will continue to call for volunteers. 

In the kind of ministry that is carried out on a regular basis, I have been in 40 of the 
43 churches for at least one meeting during the calendar year. In addition to regular 
preaching services, i taught the Book of II Corinthians at Reeds, Churchland, Center 
Hill, and Liberty. I taught the Home Mission Study ten times: at Abbotts Creek, Lex- 
ington, First, Oak Hill Memorial, Stoner's Grove, New Friendship, Coggins Memorial, 
Churchland, Liberty, Carolina Memorial, and Welcome, First. I attended at least one 
service in twelve churches during the "Here's Hope" revivals. I shared the November 
15-28 Brazil experience at Southgate, Carolina Memorial, Coggins Memorial, Trinity, 
New Friendship, and Summerville. 

I spoke to the Baptist Women at Lexington, First, and Mills Home, Baptist Women's 
Day of Prayer in the South Yadkin Association at Statesville, dedication service for 
new church plant at Rich Fork, special service at Jersey to honor Morris Hollifield for 
twenty years as pastor, and Homecoming at Faith. I also preached in revival services 
at Community Baptist Church. I attended five 50th Wedding Anniversary Receptions, 



-32- 



V 



attended four funerals and conducted two funeral services, and officiated at three 
weddings. I preached at Mountain View while they were without a pastor. 

I have participated in the following special events: Ordination service at Mills 
Home for Dale Cain, 50th Anniversary Celebration at Mountain View, 150th Celebration 
at Reeds, deacon ordination service at Mt. View, Central Carolina Civitan Club Clergy 
Day at the Lexington Y.M.C.A., Welcome, First, Commitment Banquet at Hook and An- 
chor, tree planting at Arts Council building in honor of Evelyn Kepley, ordination ser- 
vice for minister at Carolina Memorial, Annual Commencement at Wingate College,

volunteers at Reeds, Ground-breaking service for Colonial Baptist Church, farewell 
receptions for Carl Hemphill at Carolina Memorial and Gary Bedford at Wallburg, Open 
House and reception at Lexington, First for new pastor, and Prison Ministry Banquet at 
American Legion building in Lexington. 

I was involved in the January Bible Study preparation at Wake Forest, Convention 
Staff/Associational Staff Planning Sessions at Caraway, and Key Leadership at North 
Carolina Baptist Assembly. I also attended the Baptist State Convention in 
Greensboro, State V.B.S. Clinic in Concord, Southern Baptist Convention in New 
Orleans, D.O.M. Summer Conference at Wingate, and the Board of Ministers' Con- 
ference at Campbell University. I served on the 1990 Committee on Nominations for the 
Christian Action League. I led the Invocation for opening ceremonies for Senior Games 
at Central Recreation Center in Thomasville and took second place in Horseshoes. 

I have given assistance to the Pastor Search Committees at Mountain View, New 
Friendship, Park Place and Carolina Memorial. I also helped the "Here's Hope" Steer- 
ing Committee, Officers for the Ministers' Conference, Associational "ASSIST" Team, 
the Place and Preacher Committee, Program Committee, Finance Committee, and 
Nominating Committee. 

We are involved in Migrant Missions, Prison Ministry, Brazil Partnership, D.C.C.C.

Evangelism Report 

On behalf of the Here's Hope Steering Committee I would like to begin this report by 
commending the churches in our association that participated in the Here's Hope 
Revivals this past April. Out of our 44 churches 32 reported a total of 487 decisions with 
122 of those being professions of faith. We rejoice in every spiritual decision and trust 
God for a rich harvest from every seed which was sown. 

Eric Hoffer in his book entitled The True Believer writes, "those without hope are 
divided and driven to desperate self-seeking". Evangelism is the offering of a hope 
which will free an individual from living a self-centered life, to living a Christ-centered 
life. As ambassadors of Jesus Christ we are called to proclaim the hope of eternal 
salvation. To be dispensers of this blessed hope is both a great privilege and a great 
responsibility. It requires the best of our stewardship. We must witness and we must 
give. 

In the spring of 1991 Southern Baptists will be called to a fuller commitment to 
Christ as Lord and to a lifestyle of witnessing and giving through an emphasis called 
the "Witnessing-Giving Life". In preparation for this emphasis an associational 
seminar was conducted on August 9th at First Baptist Lexington. Attended by approx- 
imately 50 people from our association this event was hosted jointly by the Steward- 
ship and Evangelism Departments of our state convention. Information was shared 
concerning the promotion of revivals to be held in the sping of 1991 with the emphasis 
on witnessing and giving. The challenge was given to those attending to return to their 
respective churches with an urgency to reach the unsaved for Christ. 



-33- 



The Witnessing-Giving Life emphasis is most timely. Committing ourselves to be 
good wittnesses, coupled with being faithful stewards of our material possessions, 
will provide hope for unredeemed persons who need to hear and respond to the gospel. 
Pray that our churches in the Liberty Association will rise to that challenge in the final 
years of this century. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Penley, Chairman 

Student Ministry Report 

This past year has been a year of change for the D.C.C.C. student ministry. As you 
are aware, Gaylin Huff, who began this work and guided it for eight years, moved last 
spring to a new field of service. Her departure has created some changes, but the work 
still continues. 

Our on-campus fellowship, known as Alpha Omega, has gone well over the past 
year. Our weekly attendance has ranged from 10 to 20 students, and we have held 
those numbers even in the beginning of this present school year. We have been involv- 
ed in Bible study, fellowship, and ministry projects throughout the year, attempting to 
grow in our relationships with our Lord, each other, and our world. Two special projects 
that we undertook are worth noting; our seminar on the New Age Movement, which we 
shared with the general public last spring, and our Spring Fling Weekend at Caswell. 
On that weekend our students provided the programming for a weekend retreat which 
was attended by church youth groups from throughout the state. (By the way, they 
were commended by the state convention for their excellent work on this project - you 
should be proud!) 

As we enter the new school year, the group has agreed to work together with our 
local churches in providing youth experiences. We have several students who are 
preparing for church vocations, and others who have a rich background in church; we 
want to be available to share this with you. We will be happy to lead in youth retreats or 
youth Sundays in your churches; if you are interested, please contact our student 
president, Marci Blake, at (919) 764-0881, Billy Griffin, our vice-president, at Park Place 
Baptist Church, or me at IVlills Home 

In your churches, please don't forget to recognize your student-age members 
through On to College Day in August, Single Adult Day in September, and/or Student 
Day at Christmas. Also, I encourage you to provide The Student Magazine for them; it 
has a version of the Life and Work Sunday School lessons geared for them, it will add 
to their reading material, and it will remind them of you. 

Thank you for your support, your prayers, and your concern, and please let us know 
how we can be of service. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Dale S. Cain 



Woman's Missionary Union Report 

In 1989-90 our focus statement in WMU has been "Acteens, This is Your Year." In 
churches across the Association, Baptist Women and Baptist Young Women groups 
have established friendships with Acteens, encouraging and nurturing them. At our 
Annual Meeting in April, we emphasized this focus and were pleased to have Acteens 
taking part in the program and being present to meet their State Acteens Director, Ms. 
Linda Todd, who was our principal speaker. 

One hundred and eighteen women attended our annual Associational WMU Prayer 
Retreat at Caraway Conference Center on November 3rd and 4th. Donice Harrod, Se- 
cond Vice President, State WMU, was prayer leader and, with the help of our WMU 
women, Mrs. Harrod led in an insightful presentation about women of the Bible, 



-34- 



"Women, Just Like Us." Clara Brincefield, missionary to Chile, gave an inspiring mis- 
sionary message. 

The Associational WMU Council met quarterly. Age level Directors received special 
training provided by the State WMU staff at workshops held at Caraway. In turn, we 
held training sessions for local WMU leaders. Members of the council gave many op- 
portunities during the year for all women and girls under the WMU umbrella to met for 
instruction as well as for fellowship. 

We continued to prepare a quarterly newsletter, an instrument by which the Council 
sought to communicate with the local churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Doris Lopp, WMU Director

First Baptist Church ^ 

LEXINGTON, N.C. 
1968 - 1990 

This segment of First Baptist Churchs' history follows the historical sketch included 
in the minutes of the Liberty Association in 1968. 

A new organ was installed and dedicated on March 16, 1969. In October 1969, Rev. 
William I. Greenwood, Jr. came to serve as Associate Minister. The parsonage on 
Bellwood Street was purchased and the State Street location was sold. 

Miss Mary Sue Jones assumed the duties of the Director of Preschool Center in 
1970. In October 1970, Mrs. Gilmer Cross was named as the church's first director of 
visitation, and a Crisis Closet was begun. Also in 1970, our church led the way in 
ministering in eccumenical programs: The Literacy Program, Workshops for other 
churches. Meals on Wheels (meals actually being prepared in our kitchen) and the 
Laymen's Christian Council. 

In 1972 Miss Melba Hawkins, who had previously worked with our church returned 
as Elementary Director to work with all preschool ministries. 

Rev. David B. Smith accepted the position of Associate Minister in 1973, and in 
August 1973, Sylvia and Gerald Carter resigned as organist and Minister of Music. 

In July 1974, Mr. Al Martin joined the church staff as Minister of Music. The young 
people conducted a mission project to Indians in Cherokee, North Carolina in August 
1974. In December 1974, Tim Nichols was licensed to preach. At Christmas a beautiful 
service of "The Festival of Nine Lessons" and carols was presented by the choir, which 
was to become a tradition. 

In 1975 the preschool program was expanded to an after-school care program, and 
an all-day child care program for two year olds. Miss Libby Smith was ordained to the 
ministry. 

In July 1976, Randy Hall was ordained by the church into the ministry. Also meals on 
Wheels Ministry grew to serve 40 or more disabled, sick and aged a hot noon-day meal. 
In September, David Whiteman joined the church staff as Associate Pastor. 

First Baptist Church observed Composer Day in 1977, sponsored by Church Music 
Ministry. Mrs. Jane Marshall, outstanding composer of church music was guest con- 
ductor. The first Chrismon Tree was decorated at Christmas. The christian symbols 
were made by members of the church. Mrs. Martha Best and Mrs. C.C. Wall were 
elected as the first women deacons. During the year a Project in Ministry, under the 
direction of Rev. D. Hoke Coon, was begun to examine the integrity of church member- 
ship and the identity of a christian. On December 18, the membership adopted a new 
church Covenant; a theological statement on God, Man, and the church; and a new 
statement on church membership. 

Mr. & Mrs. Robert D. Hill were commissioned by the Foreign Mission Board of the 
Southern Baptist Convention as first members of the newly-organized Service Corp in 
1978. They had worked one year in church music ministry in Bangkok, Thailand. 

The first Maundy Thursday service was held in April 1980. In August 1980, the Chapel 
Choir went to Vail, Colorado for their Music/Mission emphasis that proved to be very 
inspiring and uplifting. Steeple Talk, a monthly newsletter to keep the membership in- 
formed of church activities was introduced in 1981 that has proved to be a very 
valuable tool. 

Mr. Herb Phelps was presented to the church to enter into the ministry in 1981. 

A renovation committee was appointed to study plans to renovate the sanctuary and 
other areas of the church. 

One of the highlights of 1981 was the planning and celebrating the Centennial birth- 
day of First Baptist Church. Some of the features of the celebration were: a class 
was taught in genealogy to help members with their family history. A Centennial Logo, 
created by Mrs. Bobbie Holton, captures the 100 year old history by depicting the first 
meeting houses. A cross-stitch pattern was designed by Mrs. Fletcher Wall, Jr. Dr. Jim 
Heivy wrote scripts in mini-dramas depicting growth and history of the church. These 
were presented on four Sundays prior to the celebration. Everyone was invited to bring 
historical data to be displayed in the history room. Rev. J. Roy Clifford was guest 
speaker for this occasion with over 200 former members attending and enjoying the 
dinner held on the grounds. Dr. Milburn Price composed a special anthem for the choir. 



-39- 



David Whiteman and Richard Honeycutt helped organize a coffee house for young 
people, called "Main Scene" in 1981, which was sponsored by Laymen's Christian 
Council. 

A "Roast Coon Day" was held in March 1982, honoring Dr. Coon for his twenty years 
of service. Richard Lowder, Jr. was called to the ministry also in March 1982. 

The Emergency Shelter Ministry to aid the homeless was begun in February 1983. A 
Relief Ministries Fund was set up with memorials made in honor of Mrs. Stella Nichols. 
These monies were used in Lexington for the food Crisis Closet and for other countries 
on-going projects for needy people. In August, Evelyn Kepley began a new Senior Adult 
Ministry. This ministry covered so many areas of service that it was recognized by the 
Southern Baptist Convention in 1988 as having the most varied program in the conven- 
tion. 

In 1984, twelve new handbells were given to the church in memory of Mr. Sam J. Smith, 
making a total of 49 bells in the handbell choir. The church also voted in 1984 to raise 
over $800,000.00 over a five year time span to repair and renovate the church. This was 
to be done in three phases. 

Phase I of the renovation project began in March 1985 with the Tower entrance, 
sanctuary, chapel and covered walkway. This project cost $650,000.00. In August the 
church members honored Al Martin and Rev. David Whiteman for twenty years combin- 
ed service. Richard Lowder, Jr. was ordained Minister of Music by his home church in 
October 1985. 

Linda Dawn Bagwell came to serve as Summer Youth Minister in May 1986. She was 
a real asset to the church staff. In October Dr. John Durham came to inaugurate the 
first Carolyn M. Parker Memorial Preaching/Teaching Lecture Series. 

"Tommy" Wilson was called in March 1987 to be Associate Minister. Dr. & Mrs. Coon 
were honored with a luncheon also in March for his 25 years of service. 

Rev. David Hoke Coon submitted his resignation in February 1989 after 27 years of 
faithful service. He is now Pastor Emeritus. 

Rev. L.H. Hollingsworth was called as Interim Pastor until a new pastor could be 
secured. 

Ground for Phase II was broken in March 1989. This project included the educational 
space renovation, building a new fellowship hall, kitchen, new administrative offices, 
installing an elevator, and a church library at a cost of $1.6 million dollars. Dedication 
of the building was held during worship service in April 1990. An open house was held 
on September 16, 1990 in order that we might see this beautiful facility. It is indeed 
remarkable that no church services were canceled during the construction, although it 
was strongly suggested by the contractor. A good spirit was felt by everyone as they 
worked together during this project, sometimes under the worst of circumstances. 

In May 1989, Al Martin was ordained into the Gospel Ministry. 

Dr. Ray N. Howell, III from Roxboro Baptist Church accepted the call to become the 
new minister of First Baptist. He was installed on April 1, 1990. Under his leadership 
the church enters into a new decade, with new ideas, but we will also continue our ef- 
fective ministries, with God's help. 

First Baptist Church now has a membership of 1,225 with almost half of those 
members living nearby. An average of 350 people attend Sunday School weekly, with 
approximately 500 for worship service. 

Thank you, Evelyn Smith for your help in compiling this history.

V 



North Lexington Baptist Churcli 



In 1913-1914 the Erianger family of New York City, New York purchased a large 
parcel of land, just north of the City of Lexington, North Carolina, on which to build a 
large Textile Mill, and a Model Village. People came from many different states to work 
in the mill, and to live in the Model Village. The Eriangers' were of Jewish faith, but 
never hindered anyone from worship of their choice. In the Model Village they built a 
Union Church building for all denominations to use. Methodists used the building on 
one Sunday and the Baptists used the building on opposite Sundays, and occasionally 
the building would be open to any denomination. The Baptists saw a real need for a 
Baptist Church in the village. 

When Dr. Fred D. Hale, succeeded Rev. J.M. Hamerick in March 1916 at First Baptist 
Church, Lexington, North Carolina, he immediately heard about the need. One of his 
first endeavors was to organize a "Branch Mission Church" of First Baptist Church. 
This was organized April 12, 1916 and was called "Lexington Church". Also in 1916 this 
church became a member of Liberty Baptist Association. 

About six months later Dr. Hale acting as moderator, along with Rev. M.L. Kesler, 
from Baptist Childrens' Home, Thomasville, North Ccirolina, J. A. Combs, W.W. Presley, 
and Rev. W.L Barrs acting as the Council, did organize a separate "Branch Mission" to 
be called "Erianger Baptist Church" of Erianger, North Carolina. 

Dr. Hale read the Church Covenant, Rev. M.L. Kesler delivered the Charge to the 
church and Deacons. Mr. Redwine, Dr. Owens, and Mr. Hankins of First Baptist Church 
of Lexington, North Carolina made short talks along with Dr. Hale and F.L. Scoggins. 
The roster of church members in 1916 listed fifty-seven charter members, that joined 
by statement and letters as follows: 

Mr. & Mrs. J.W. Aycock, Mrs. Jessie Freeman, Mr. & Mrs. F.M. Freeman, Mrs. Lena 
Gurley, Mr. & Mrs. C.W. Hinson, Mrs. Mag Higgins, Mrs. Lula Hamerick, Mrs. E.M. 
Hughes, Mrs. C.N. Hutchinson, Thelma Hutchinson, Mr. & Mrs. R.S. Hames, Mrs. 
M.O. Proctor, W.W. Presley, Mrs. Mary Puckett, Mr. & Mrs. S.M. Scoggins, Fred and 
Lenora Scoggins, Mr. & Mrs. T.F. Thorne, Paul Thome, Annie Varker, Miss Emma 
Sue Wilson, Annie Wilson, Minda Williams, Pauline and Hoyt Young, General Huff- 
stickler, Myrtle and Edith Varker, Mr. & Mrs. B.L Hames, John H. Shytles, Mattie 
Hinson, Mary Maurice, Esther Huffstickler, Saude Wilson, Mr. & Mrs. W.B. James, 
Mr. & Mrs. J.A. Combs, Johnsie Combs, Mrs. W.J. Johnson and Gertrude Conch. 

William Loman Barrs was the first pastor. F.L. Scoggins served as the first clerk and 
the first treasurer was M.O. Proctor. R.S. Hames, T.F. Thorne and J.W. Aycock were the 
first deacons. This newly organized church worshipped in the Union building for 
several years. In 1923 they purchased from the Episcopals a little mission Chapel 
located on Winston Road in Erianger, North Carolina for a sum of $1 ,000.00, where they 
worshipped until it was overflowing. With permission from Mr. Grimes to build a 
church on some of his land, they built the Tabernacle during Christmas Week. The 
name was changed to Tabernacle Baptist Church of Erianger, North Carolina. They 
worshipped there and over the years bricked and remodeled the building. Services 
were held here until the attendance was over 400 with 280 enrolled in Sunday School. 

The Erianger Mill granted them a lot on the corner of Office and Church Streets (now 
Ninth and Hames Streets). They planned to building 1934-1935, but there was a general 
strike at the Mill. Anyone who had had anything to do with the strike was let go. The at- 
tendance dropped tremendously as many members had taken part in the strike. The 
church was built at a cost of $15,000.00 and services began in 1936. In 1952-1953 the 
Erianger Mill donated the old school building, beside the church to the church to be us- 
ed for church purposes. It was made into Sunday School rooms and by 1957, they had 
outgrown their facilities again. A two story educational building was built behind the 
church for approximately $60,000.00. The name of the church had been changed back 
to Erianger Baptist Church in 1936. 

In 1970 the school building was completely remodeled. The Pastor's study ws moved 
into this building along with an office for Rev. Leonard Rollins, Director of Liberty Bap- 
tist Association. During the seventies, the church changed the name to North Lex- 
ington Baptist Church, and purchased some land on Mize Road to build a different type 
church. In the eighties the church sponsored Mt. Moriah Manor, a 45 unit housing 



-41- 



development for low income senior adults. It is located on Swing Dairy Road in Lex- 
ington, North Carolina. The church is now in the process of building a 30 unit housing 
development for the handicapped, adjoining Mt. Moriah Manor, to be called Kidron 
Korner. 

North Lexington has an Out Reach Ministry that was honored by the State Mission 
Board in 1989. At present the church is in a three phase building program that will in- 
clude a multi-purpose sanctuary to be used seven days a week, a conventional sanc- 
tuary, and a two story educational building. We are preparing for a Day-Care Center 
and many ways to reach out and minister to more people. 

At this time the three older buildings in Erianger are on the market for sale, but are 
rented to two different pastors, where worship services are being conducted. 
Pastors that have served North Lexington Baptist Church are: 
Rev. W.L Barrs, Rev. J.C Gillespie, Rev. LL Hudson, Rev. John S. Nichols, Dr. Ira 
Freeman, Rev. Wm. Ross Yokley, Rev. C.R. Johnson, Rev. J.N. Bowman, Rev. E.C. 
Roach, Rev. C.B. Atkinson, Rev. C.C. Matheny, Rev. J.W. Crocker, Rev. Guy C. 
Moore, Rev. Ben Jay Mclver, Rev. Melvin Greene, Rev. Leon Keefe, and Dr. Robert J. 



North Lexington Baptist Church began services in the first new building October 1, 
1988, and with Gods' help they plan to be in the multi-purpose sanctuary in 1991. The 
church will be seventy-five years old October 29, 1991. An in-depth history is being 
compiled to be dedicated during the Anniversary Celebration. The total cost of all three 
new buildings will be approximately one and one half million dollars. 

North Lexington Baptist Church has not arrived! This church must remain sensitive 
to the Spirit of God as He seeks to lead us to greater heights of service and witness for 
the glory of God and for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Thank you, Joyce W. Melton, who is church historian and clerk for your help in 
writing this history.

contacted by a committee appointed by the Association, to ascertain the wishes and

Its duties shall be to plan and correlate the activities of the Associational organiza- 
tion. 

Section 10. CHRISTIAN LIFE AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS COMMITTEE: 

This committee shall be composed of three members, whose duty it shall be to

morals. 

BYLAW IX — AMENDMENTS 

Amendments to the Bylaws may be made at any session of the annual meeting of 
the Association when presented in writing and approved by a majority of the mes- 
sengers present and voting. 

Standing Resolutions 

Ordination of New Ministers 

It is strongly recommended as the position of this Association: 

1. That, when a church desires to put forth a candidate for examination and ap- 
proval for ordination to the full work of the Gospel Ministry, an Examining Council 
composed of a committee of five elected by the Association in annual meeting, plus 
the pastors and one layman from each cooperating church in the fellowship of the 
Liberty Baptist Association, be summoned by written invitation of at least one week 
in advance from the church nominating the candidate. 

2. That the examination of the candidate be conducted by the Examining Council 
and that a report of its findings be given to the nominating church. If the report is fav- 
orable the nominating church will set the date of ordination and notify the member 
churches. 

3. That we ordain only those who have received a definite call to become a pastor, 
an associate pastor, or an educational director of a Baptist church on regular stand- 
ing in the Association or those who have felt a call to the mission field, the chaplain- 
cy of our armed forces or the chaplaincy of a public institution whose church shall 
have requested in writing his ordination before the call of the ordaining council shall 
be approved. 

Policies for tfie Establishment of Missions 

1. Definite sponsorship by an established church. 

2. Sponsoring church to work in cooperation with Associational Missions Commit- 
tee. 

3. Sponsoring church to retain control of Mission until such time as the church 
and the Associational Missions Committee agree that the Mission is self-sufficient. 

4. Sponsoring church to call Mission pastor and select all workers in the Mission. 

5. Sponsoring church to encourage Mission from the beginning to give a definite 
percentage of the offering plate dollar through the Cooperative Program and Associ- 
ational Missions. 

6. Sponsoring church should insist upon a full and well-defined program of South- 
ern Baptist Work in the Mission, using the Southern Baptist literature. 

7. Sponsoring church to work with the Associational Missions Committee in prop- 
erly locating the Mission. 

8. Sponsoring church to work with the Mission in planning of new buildings, using 
the services of the Church Planning Department of the Baptist State Convention.

Organization and Admission of New Churches 



Recognizing the right of the Association to determine its own membership and be- 
ing aware of the importance of the manner in which the churches are organized, we 
recommend that any group of individuals desiring to organize themselves into a new 
church with the purpose of seeking recognition of and fellowship and cooperation 
with the Association be requested to meet the following standards: 

1. Notice shall be given to the Moderator of the desire to organize a church before 
any such organization takes place. The Moderator will then ask the Missions Com- 
mittee to study and pass upon the need for and the practicability of such an organi- 
zation. 

2. That the location of said church shall be sufficiently removed so as not to in- 
terfere with the work or encroach upon the territory of the churches already affiliated 
with the Association. This will be determined by the Missions Committee. 

3. Upon being approved by the Missions Committee the group will then request 
this committee to examine the church covenant, articles of faith, and constitution (if 
a constitution has been adopted) of the proposed church. Should the committee ap- 
prove the covenant, articles of faith, and constitution, the group will proceed at a 
later date to be constituted into a Baptist church of the same faith and order.
